Currently quality assurance has become a key point in the development of software, which is why various quality assurance models have been created with the aim of improving the processes of its creation. However, most of these models are oriented to large companies. This article proposes a quality assurance model (MACPSP) to help SMEs improve their software development processes, based on the Deming cycle for continuous improvement and on the good practices of CMMI and ISO 12207 The model has been adapted to any development methodology, and is easy to implement. The implementation of the model for a project of a SME shows a reduction of defects, a better definition of the requirements and a higher percentage of success in test cases.
