ÐSoftware organizations are in need of methods to understand, structure, and improve the data they are collecting. We have developed an approach for use when a large number of diverse metrics are already being collected by a software organization [1], [2]. The approach combines two methods. One looks at an organization's measurement framework in a top-down goal-oriented fashion and the other looks at it in a bottom-up data-driven fashion. The top-down method is based on a measurement paradigm… CONTINUE READING
