Abstract
This paper describes a case study on quality monitoring conducted in an industrial environment. In a highly iterative project, everything seems to happen at the same time; analysis, design and testing. In the study, data collected from three software development projects is analyzed, to investigate which characteristics are stable across projects and feature groups of the product. Design and test activities are conducted in parallel in the incremental development environment, adding features to a product base continuously. The contribution of the paper is multifold, detailing the case study methodology used with its subgoals and procedure, presenting the lessons learned from the study, and the results as such from the case study give...

This paper describes a case study on quality monitoring conducted in an industrial environment.

In the study, data collected from three software development projects is analyzed, to investigate which characteristics are stable across projects and feature groups of the product. Design and test activities are conducted in parallel in the incremental development environment, adding features to a product base continuously. The contribution of the paper is multifold, detailing the case study methodology used with its subgoals and procedure, presenting the lessons learned from the study, and the results as such from the case study give insights into a complex development environment and the trends of the retrieved data, which e.g. are used for a defect prediction model.
