  author={Srijith Sreenivasan and Manimaran Sundaram},
  journal={IOSR Journal of Computer Engineering},
Agile scrum projects are gaining popularity for software development and delivery, due to its inherent attributes of flexibility in execution and quicker time to market. However, the critics of Agile have been raising questions on the predictability of success of Agile execution as the emphasis given to quantitative management using predictive techniques for an Agile project may not be to the extent of large mission critical projects which uses in-process leading indicators to predict outcomes…

Process Performance Models in Software Engineering: A Mathematical Solution Approach to Problem Using Industry Data

An IT Project Manager is responsible for project planning, estimating and scheduling, developing and monitoring the progress throughout its development life cycle. The selection of a particular

Process Performance Models in Software Engineering: A Mathematical Solution Approach to Problem Using Industry Data

The authors suggest that a designed process performance model (PPM) can help to predict the required factors of a process to help achieve set goals for the process and help to control factors that the project and the organizations need to control and ensure expected results.

Application of Statistical Techniques in Project Monitoring and Control

The paper will discuss how statistical techniques have benefited in delivering a quality product within budgeted effort and schedule and analyze the improvement, impact using statistical techniques.



Predicting Release Time for Open Source Software Based on the Generalized Software Reliability Model

This paper focuses on the release dates of open source software (OSS) developments and the number of detected issues (faults) since OSS developments comply well with the definition of the agile development in terms of incremental process and frequent releases and proposes a method to evaluate the accuracy of the predicted release time.
