risk management; software product evaluation

You can't control what you can't measure. And you can't decide if you are wandering around in the dark. Risk management in practice requires shedding light on the internals of the software product in order to make informed decisions. Thus, in practice, risk management has to be based on information about artifacts (documentation, code, and executables) in order to detect (potentially) critical issues. This tutorial presents experiences from industrial cases worldwide on qualitative and quantitative measurement of software products. We present our lessons learned as well as consolidated experiences from practice and provide a classification scheme of applicable measurement techniques. Participants of the tutorial receive an introduction to the techniques in theory and then apply them in practice in interactive exercises. This enables participants to learn how to shed light on the internals of their software and how to make risk management decisions efficiently and effectively.
