In this paper an approach is presented, developed at Fiat Auto in co-operation with the System and Software Evaluation Centre of the Italian National Research Council, to set up a methodology supporting the management of software projects and suppliers. The application of the approach to the management of a software project at Fiat Auto is discussed.
