Abstract: Abstract We present FAME (Filter, Analyze, Measure and Evaluate), a simplified approach for Open Source software assessment. This approach has been derived by more heavyweight, proven approaches developed in a University research environment, to match the needs of small organizations. The proposed approach has been developed by CC-ICT-SUD, a consortium for the delivery of technology transfer services, and for transferring advanced methodologies for software evaluation and assessment from academic to industrial contexts, in particular for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME). The FAME methodology is briefly described, and a case study involving the choice of a document management system for a SME is presented, showing how the approach can be used.
