The increasing demand for software has generated greater need for software de-velopment processes. The literature, on the other hand, does not present processes for the development of scientific software, and, in this way, in previous studies, a Specific Process for Scientific Software (SPSS) was proposed. It was conceived based on the Humphrey’s Meth-odology, which defines that for the acquisition of a process it is necessary the execution of eight steps. Having in mind that the six first steps have already been concluded, the current work considers the execution of the seventh and eighth steps of the Methodology, which are the validation of the initial process and its later improvement. It is important to highlight the significance of these steps because, for a process to ensure its efficiency, it must be tested and validated. So, firstly, a webapp to automate and model the SPSS was developed, in order to help in its implementation. In the continuation of the study, SPSS was applied in real envi-ronments of scientific software development, to obtain results which allow them to be ana-lyzed through a validation technique, by inspection, named VProcInsp. At the end, in spite of some inconsistencies, it was concluded that the SPSS had indicated that it can really contrib-ute in the development of academic scientific software. The results are shown and discussed in this the article.
