A Decision Support Framework for Metrics Selection in Goal-Based Measurement Programs: GQM-DSFMS
This web-page provides complementary material for our paper "A Decision Support Framework for Metrics Selection in Goal-Based Measurement Programs: GQM-DSFMS".
The figure below shows the process used in GQM-DSFMS. Different files are appended, for each file we reference to the step it supports in the figure.
The tool provides a means to enter the information needed to run a measurement program with GQM-DSFMS. The tool supports Phase 1 to 3. The tool can be found here: Link
Data collection forms
The tool contains multiple data collection forms, showing the data fields, and hence information to be collected to use GQM-DSFMS. Tool documentation can be found here: Link
Templates for goal and question definition can be found here: Goal-template and Quesiton-template
The metric repository is populated with metrics used in the case study we applied GQM-DSFMS on. The metric repository can be found here: Link
We presented algorithms aiding in the selection of metrics based on information need fulfillment and costs. The algorithms take information collected with the tool as input. The algorithms are implemented in matlab. The algorithms support Phase 4 (Decision Making). The implemented algorithms can be found here: Link.
