Using TSP Data to Evaluate Your Project Performance

  • Abstract

    The Team Software Process (TSP) provides a framework to predictably and effectively build software-intensive products. It relies on data collected by team members to provide insight into how a software project is operating. For this paper, an exploratory data analysis was conducted to investigate other ways that TSP data could be used. A set of measures was determined that allow analyses of TSP projects in terms of their fidelity to the TSP process and their project performance. These measures were applied to a data set of 41 TSP projects from an organization to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Software engineering teams already using TSP for soft-ware development can use the measures provided in this report to gain further insight into their projects.
