SAAS, Software Customization, Process Algebra, Multi-layred, Architecture.
As the rapid increment on the number of software systems and its’s user, the complexity to manage the software systems is not very easy. Software as a service (SaaS) provides only user required software services in form of web - mostly based on the vendor developed/maintained model, which creates the new challenges for the software customers (tenants).

In this paper, we purpose a multi-layered architecture of SAAS framework, customized by both vendors and tenants - with the help of process algebra. Moreover, the architecture will be able to offer an extant vendor model of SAAS as well as tenant based precise self-customization services system, while all the processes are present in an algebraic form.

Finally, we show the efficiency and effectiveness of our architecture via process algebra, which we believe is a well-designed and non-existing architecture of the SAAS customization framework.
