  • Abstract

    This presentation was part of the Seventh International Workshop on Managing Technical Debt, held in conjunction with the 31st International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME 2015).

    Current technical debt management approaches mainly address specific types of technical debt. This presentation introduces a framework to aid in decision making for technical debt management, and it includes those elements considered in technical debt management in the available literature, which are classified in three groups and mapped into three stakeholders' points of view. The research method was systematic mapping. In contrast to current approaches, the framework is not constrained by a concrete type of technical debt. Using this framework, it will be possible to build specific models to assist in decision making for technical debt management.
