Abstract

Recent research has clarified the usefulness of in-process measurement of a software development project. Past research showed the need for technology to perform in-process measurement of a software development project and utilize the results. Research continues on methods of measurement, analysis, visualization, and feedback of the results, suited to different software development structures. In this paper, the authors present an empirical study focused on requirements for feedback of measurement results. Japanese industry generally uses a hierarchical industrial structure to develop large information systems. In such an environment, effective feedback of measurement results requires different approaches from those that apply to homogenous and flat development organizations. This research illustrates conditions for effective feedback in a hierarchically structured development organization based on actual measurements.
