V-Modell XT - Grundlagen, Erfahrungen, Werkzeuge
- A. Rausch, M. Broy
Measurement has been emphasized as an effective method for gaining control and insight into software development projects. For that reason many organizations have incorporated measurement based controlling mechanisms into their software development processes. However, an integrated coupling between controlling mechanisms and the organization wide standardized process definitions on different application levels, like for instance on engineering and managing level, is still missing. Thereby standardized de-escalation and exception procedures could be provided to project and executive management in case of abnormal project situation. These procedures support help to perform corrective actions within the projects. Therefore the process definition has to be extended to incorporate standardized controlling measurements and deescalation and exception procedures. To demonstrated and apply the proposed concepts the standard process the V-Model XT is used as application sample.
