Metrics Research

Research: Details

The goal of this research is to provide the software industry with methods/tools for effective and efficient use of metrics.

The projects in software metrics have been conducted in close cooperation with Ericsson since 2006 under the research program Software Architecture Quality Center, a collaboration between Ericsson Software Research and IT University of Göteborg.

Our research addresses the following research problems:How to address information needs using indicators and metrics?

  • How to create effective and efficient measurement programs?
  • How to create early warning systems which will "warn" projects, products, and organizations about potential problems?
  • How to identify and effectively monitor bottlenecks in software projects using quantitative data?

These problems have been (and still are) addressed using empirical methods: experiments in industrial setting, industrial case studies, and surveys among practitioners.
