Abstract:


Software defect prediction has drawn the attention of many
researchers in empirical software engineering and software maintenance
due to its importance in providing quality estimates and to identify the
needs for improvement from project management perspective. However,
most defect prediction studies seem valid primarily in a particular
context and little concern is given on how to find out which prediction
model is well suited for a given project context. In this paper we present
a framework for conducting software defect prediction as aid for the
project manager in the context of a particular project or organization.
The framework has been aligned with practitioners┬┤ requirements and is
supported by our findings from a systematical literature review on
software defect prediction. We provide a guide to the body of existing
studies on defect prediction by mapping the results of the systematic literature
review to the framework.
