Title: A model for analyzing performance problems and root causes in thepersonal software process
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: High-maturity software development processes, such as the Team Software Process and the accompanyingPersonal Software Process (PSP), can generate significant amounts of data that can be periodically analyzedto identify performance problems, determine their root causes, and devise improvement actions. However,there is a lack of tool support for automating that type of analysis, and hence diminish the manual effortand expert knowledge required. So, we propose in this paper a comprehensive performance model, addressingtime estimation accuracy, quality, and productivity, to enable the automated (tool based) analysis of performance data produced by PSP developers, namely, identify and rank performance problems and their rootcauses. A PSP data set referring to more than 30 000 projects was used to validate and calibrate the model.Copyright (c) 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
