Process defines a framework that must be established for effective delivery software engineering technology. It forms the basis for management control of software projects and and established the context in which technical methods are applied, work products are produced, milestones are established, quality is assured and change is properly managed. A collection of actives including communication, planning, modeling, construction, and deployment.
Methods provide technical how-to's for building software. Rely on a set of basic principles that govern each area of technology and include modeling activities and other descriptive techniques.
Tools provide automated support for the process and the methods.
A software process is an abstract representation of a process methodology (waterfall, agile, etc..). Process don't tell you how to do things rather outline how types of things are done. Methods are guidelines for creating software that consist of steps and deliverables to finish the software. Each method contains diffrent stages or steps which can be accomplished by using certain techniques, models, and tools.
