In search for useful metrics - embedded system design for automotive applications
In search for metrics to measure dependability of software systems, I've encountered this interesting article. It has nothing to do with Agile or development processes - it's the real deal measuring product properties.
The metrics described in this article are mainly related to the automotive software development, but they gave me an idea that we should be very observant on how we can measure dependability in early development phases.
Say that we have an agile project in an automotive domain, when does it make sense to measure dependability? Which metrics should we collect over time? Which models should we measure?
And most importantly, how do we provide teams with the support to reason about dependability when no product is around...
It's interesting to look into this paper to get a few research ideas out.
