It's my trust that software program engineers not just want to know software program engineering tools and methods, yet that additionally they should still know the way to evaluate them. Conse­ quently, i've got taught rules of experimentation and empirical reviews as a part of the software program engineering curriculum. beforehand, this intended identifying a textual content from one other self-discipline, frequently psychology, and augmenting it with magazine or confer­ ence papers that supply scholars with software program engineering examples of experi­ ments and empirical reviews. This booklet fills an immense hole within the software program engineering literature: it professional­ vides a concise, entire examine an enormous element of software program engineer­ ing: experimental research of ways good software program engineering equipment, methodologies, and methods paintings. on the grounds that all of those swap so swiftly in our box, you will need to understand how to guage new ones. This e-book teaches tips on how to move approximately doing this and hence is efficacious not just for the software program engineering stu­ dent, but in addition for the practising software program engineering specialist who might be capable of • review software program engineering thoughts. • ascertain the price (or lack thereof) of claims made a few software program engineer­ ing process or technique in released stories. ultimately, this e-book serves as a beneficial source for the software program engineering researcher.

Example text

If we, for example, would like to compare two methods, it might be necessary to organize the study as a case study or an experiment, depending on the scale of the evaluation. An example can be to use a pilot project to evaluate the effects of a change compared to some baseline [Kitchenham95]. Case studies are very suitable for industrial evaluation of software engineering methods and tools because they can avoid scale-up problems. The difference between case studies and experiments is that experiments sample over the variables that are being manipulated, while case studies sample from the variables representing the typical situation.

The ordinal scale ranks the entities after an ordering criterion, and is therefore more powerful than the nominal scale. Examples of ordering criteria are "greater than", "better than", and "more complex". e. M'=F(M) where M' and M are different measures on the same attribute, and F is a monotonic increasing function. Examples of an ordinal scale are grades and software complexity. • Interval scale. The interval scale is used when the difference between two measures are meaningful, but not the value itself.

3 Experience Factory The QIP is based on that the improvement of software development requires continuous learning. Experience should be packaged into experience models that can be effectively understood and modified. Such experience models are stored in a repository, called experience base. The models are accessible and can be modified for reuse in current projects. QIP focuses on a logical separation of project development (performed by the Project Organization) from the systematic learning and packaging of reusable experience (performed by the Experience Factory) [Basili89].
