Evaluating the impact of software process simulations - a case study

Andersson, Carina LU ; Runeson, Per LU and Thelin, Thomas LU (2004) 5th International Workshop on Software Process Simulation and Modeling (ProSim 2004)" W11L Workshop - 26th International Conference on Software Engineering In 5th International Workshop on Software Process Simulation and Modeling (ProSim 2004) W11L Workshop - 26th International Conference on Software Engineering p.217-221
Abstract
The software process simulation research field has been growing in recent years. Much effort has been used for developing detailed software process simulation models. However, few studies are available characterizing the effect process simulation models could have when introduced to an organization. Furthermore, most published work in this area has been focused on the effect that the models have for project management. This motivates a study with focus on other categories of project staff, and evaluation of the benefits that could be gained by the introduction of a software process model. We describe an ongoing qualitative study evaluating the impact of the introduction of a software process simulation model in an industrial setting. The... (More)

We describe an ongoing qualitative study evaluating the impact of the introduction of a software process simulation model in an industrial setting. The focus is to analyse the impact the model has among developers and testers in a specific organization, and to evaluate the model's suitability as a tool for gaining better understanding of the dynamic process behaviour among the study participants (Less)
