Chapter 7 Metrics Data Analysis in the Relationship Domain
A Fertile Domain
Processes are interdependent, forming a network. The interplay between process parameters has been the subject of several studies in software engineering, leading to understanding of the hidden process dynamics. The interactions that exist in the process network can be symbolically represented as a map of relationships between metrics. The symbolic world of relationship between metrics is a new domain, which mirrors the real world of processes and the influences they exert on one another.
The analysis of an individual metric in the frequency and time domains enhances the indicative abilities of the metric and allows us to see patterns. In the new domain, we expand our ...
