Model-Driven Engineering a new software development paradigm concept. The paradigm predicts that software development core artifact ceases to be the code and becomes the models and software architecture. The concept does not come without impacts to the supporting structures of development. The way the software development process is seen, executed and structured is obliterated. Software engineering has been expanding the its boundaries, creating and tailoring settings, methods and structures to the new paradigm. Software quality is one of the boundaries of software engineering that is expanded, as well as the software development process. This paper presents a study on the evolution of software quality and on the MDE process. Based on this, we propose a process framework for software development in Model-Driven Engineering, integrating quality concepts that were investigated and giving a holistic view to MDE process. The framework was subject to a conceptual evaluation and had its use illustrated. The framework evaluation showed that the proposed framework is adequate, covering all constructs suggested for a good software development process. The framework ultimately aims to integrate and create synergy between the parties participating in model-driven development.
