Recent advancements in Model Driven Engineering (MDE) call for the corresponding software development processes. These processes need to be able to assist multi-metamodel development by extending support for the usage of models and transformations. Business processes are sequenced on the basis of their sequential contingencies whereas we argue that software development processes are meant to be sequenced along their intrinsic factors. In this paper, we present a process metamodel from our framework, inspired from the component based paradigm, to automate the software development processes. This approach presents the concept of structured artifacts and exploits the activity sequencing based on events and constraints.
