Indicators and Metrics for Risk Assessment in Software Projects : A Mapping Study

  title={Indicators and Metrics for Risk Assessment in Software Projects : A Mapping Study},
  author={J{\'u}lio Menezes and C. Gusm{\~a}o and H. Moura},
The usage of metrics and indicators in software development companies acts in both strategic and tactical levels, it is effective for optimization of processes and also helps in managerial decisions. On the other hand, because of abstractness and subjectivity of the risk, the risk management is many times overlooked by the software development organizations. Therefore, it is necessary the definition of metrics and indicators for risk assessment in order to make the risk management a more… Expand
