Summary:
As computing technology continues to advance, it has become increasingly difficult to find businesses that do not rely, at least in part, upon the collection and analysis of data for project management and process improvement. The cost of software, for example, tends to increase over time due to its complexity and the expense of employing humans to develop, maintain, and evolve it. To help control costs, organizations often seek to improve the process by which software systems are developed and evolved. Improvements can be realized by discovering previously unknown or hidden relationships between the artifacts generated as a result of developing a complex software system. The objective of this the work was to engineer a visualization software tool that helps managers and engineers better plan for future projects by helping them discover new knowledge gained by synthesizing and visualizing data mined from software repository records from their own previous projects.
