Abstract : A software method for monitoring, measuring, and controlling the evolution of a software development project is provided. The method compares quantitative measures of software product and process attributes with expected and observed product characteristics over the development life cycle. The resulting attribute measurements are evaluated in the context of an overriding issue definition that identifies and prioritizes software product and process issues. The method includes a set of software products which can be utilized to implement the method.
