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 software development can use the measures provided in this report to gain further insight into their projects.
