A comparative analysis of the efficiency of change metrics and static code attributes for defect prediction
TLDR
A comparative analysis of the predictive power of two different sets of metrics for defect prediction indicates that for the Eclipse data, process metrics are more efficient defect predictors than code metrics.
An empirical study of open-source and closed-source software products
TLDR
It is concluded that, when implementing or switching to the open-source development model, practitioners should ensure that an appropriate metrics collection strategy is in place to verify the perceived benefits.
A Case Study on the Impact of Refactoring on Quality and Productivity in an Agile Team
TLDR
Results indicate that refactoring not only increases aspects of software quality, but also improves productivity and is applicable to small teams working in similar, highly volatile domains.
Project management in plan-based and agile companies
TLDR
An empirical study to investigate whether agile methods change and improve project management practices in software companies shows that adopting agile methods appears to improve management of the development process and customer relationships.
Requirements Engineering for Agile Methods
TLDR
This chapter introduces Agile Methods as the implementation of the principles of the lean production in software development through the identification and the removal of waste, whatever does not add value for the customer.
Collecting, integrating and analyzing software metrics and personal software process data
TLDR
This work presents PROM (PRO Metrics), an automated tool for collecting and analyzing software metrics as well as personal software process (PSP) data that automatically collects data from development tools.
Software cost estimation with fuzzy models
TLDR
A fuzzy set-based generalization of the COCOMO model is concerned with, augmenting the model by admitting software systems to belong partially to the three main categories and discussing key implications of this generalization and its links with a generalized sensitivity analysis.
Managing uncertainty in requirements: a survey in documentation-driven and agile companies
TLDR
The results show that agile and document-driven companies consider in a different way the problem of changing requirements and the related uncertainty; thus, they manage differently requirements gathering and the relationship with the customer.
