Intellectual control over software development projects requires the existence of an integrated set of explicit models of the products to be developed, the processes used to develop them, the resources needed, and the productivity and quality aspects involved. In recent years the development of languages, methods and tools for modeling software processes,(More)
Measurement is a necessary prerequisite for software process improvement. However, few guidelines exist for systematic planning of measurement programs within software projects. We advocate beginning with goal-oriented measurement as expressed in the GQM paradigm. When applying GQM, meaningful refinement of measurement goals requires a deep understanding of(More)
An approach to descriptive process modeling is described. A description of the process – a process model – is essential for successful process improvement. First, a process model serves as a baseline for process change. Secondly, the process model is needed to identify measurement points. Furthermore, an explicit representation of the process supports(More)
Intellectual control over software development projects requires the existence of an integrated set of explicit models of the products to be developed, the processes used to develop them, and the productivity and quality aspects involved. Processes especially are still based mostly on implicit models. In recent years the development of languages, methods(More)
Analyzing software process models to predict the behavior of software processes helps in planning and enacting software projects. Since software processmodels can capture the key information that is necessary to assessprocessrelated risks, this paper discusses how approaches for software process analysis may be applied to software risk assessment.
