In software engineering there are many models to develop a completely functional application. Many of them have been sufficiently reported in the current literature, which include traditional, agile methodologies and some hybrids. The main objective of this work is to implement the Hybrid Work Framework HWF-PR in a specific case study, with the participation of two development groups, one control group using the extreme programming XP and, another experimental group using HWF-PR, in order to establish differences that allow to determine the benefits of the framework. The groups are composed of students of the computer engineering program of the UAGM of Puerto Rico. The foundation of this method is to apply the Shewhart principle, agile methods, agile practices and usability. Developing software through this methodology would represent a saving of time and effort. The flexibility to make corrections at any time can represent the improvement of ideas and the development of a better product.
