Simulator for Risk Assessment of Software Project based on Performance Measurement


P. K. Suri, Bharat Bhushan, Ashish Jolly


Vol. 9  No. 6  pp. 23-29


Any software project under development is having inherent risk. Most of the software's fails due to over budget, delay in the delivery of the software's, poor performance and so on. [1] Performance is a nonfunctional software attribute that plays a crucial role in wide application domains spreading from safety-critical systems to e-commerce applications. Software risk can be quantified as a combination of the probability that a software system may fail and the severity of the damages caused by the failure. [2] An attempt has been made to design a simulator for analyzing the performance measurement of Software Risk Assessment using Markov process. The proposed simulator (during the process of software development) gives the incremental risk for every phase and also the total cumulative risk as the software progress from one release to another release.
