dc.description.abstractThe current state of the art techniques of risk assessment rely on checklists and human expertise. This constitutes a weak approach because different people could arrive at different conclusions from the same scenario. The difficulty of estimating the duration of projects applying evolutionary software processes adds intricacy to the risk assessment problem. This dissertation introduces a formal method to assess the risk and the duration of software projects automatically, based on measurements that can be obtained early in the development process. The method has been designed according to the characteristics of evolutionary software processes, such as efficiency, requirement volatility and complexity. The formal model based on these three indicators estimates the duration and risk of evolutionary software processes. The approach introduces benefits in two fields: a) automation of risk assessment and, b) early estimation methods for evolutionary software processes.en_US
