Introducing tool support for retrospective analysis of release planning decisions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The release planning activity in market-driven requirements engineering is crucial but difficult. The quality of the decisions on product content and release timing determines the market success, but as predictions of market value and development cost are uncertain, the decisions are not always optimal. This paper presents a prototype tool for retrospective analysis of release planning decisions based on tool requirements gathered in two previous empirical studies where retrospective analysis was done manually. The supported method enables representation of different views in the decision-making process. The results from an initial validation indicate that the retrospective analysis benefits from the supporting tool.
