Abstract: The increasing demand of software products for different business organization and individuals day-by-day enforces the developers to use policy, technology in a planned manner for the development of quality software products. It is important to entertain all different phases of software development life cycle (SDLC) i.e. from requirements to implementation, maintenance to re-engineering with the use of integrated computer-aided software engineering (CASE) tools and the use of group support systems (GSS) and joint application development (JAD) in the context of CASE environments to facilitate the entire development process. An integrated framework is proposed that facilitates the developers to build up confidence for the improvement of quality for software products.
