Identifying Risk Using ODC Based Growth Models

        This paper uses the relative growth of a defects classified dynamics of the software development process during insight into dynamics of the software development process during later parts of testing. This is particularly useful to help identify management actions to better use people resources (both skill and staffing levels) to respond to difficulties experienced with the product in test. Specifically the technique helps to: . Identify the reasons for instability in the product demonstrated by growth modeling. . Evaluate the relative stability of specific aspects of the product such as design, code, etc. . Guide the choice of resource levels and skills necessary to respond to difficulties faced in the product.
