Software process models
This thesis studies the correlation between software process models and software metrics. To support our studies we have defined a Process - Metric Evaluation Framework and derived an evaluation template from it. The template served as a basic tool in studding the relationships between various process models, artifacts and software metrics.
We have evaluated a number of process models according to our template and have identified suitable software metrics. We have also recommended a root cause analysis approach at various points of the process models.
The suggested software metrics can be derived from various product and process artifacts. They can be used to curb the risks generated at each phase of the development process, identify issues, and do better planning and project management. The evaluation template can also be used to evaluate other models and identify effective metrics.
