I've certainly seen "decompose" used to describe the
stage of the software design process where you derive
module and interface specs from a higher-level spec.

My question wouldn't be about wording, but about the
notion that "processes" can be decomposed into "software
products". I suspect there might be a dangerous fallacy
lurking underneath the writer's assumptions.
