In order to improve the quality of software systems, measurement programs have been implemented in many companies to support process improvement activities. The planning and implemantation of a measurement program requires in practice, a significant amount of effort. Cost reduction may be achieved by providing knowledge-based support packaging and reusing experiences gathered on past measurement programs. In this article, we state the requirements for the knowledge-based support of planning GQM-based measurement programs. Reuse opportunities are precisely identified, the knowledge to be captured for effective reuse is identified and structured, and reuse scenarios examples are provided.
