This textbook is intended for use by SPI (Software Process Improvement) managers and researchers, quality managers, and experienced project and research managers. The papers constitute the research proceedings of the 15th EuroSPI (European So- ware Process Improvement, www.eurospi.net) conference in Dublin, Ireland, 3–5 September 2008. Since the first conference, held in Dublin in 1994, EuroSPI conferences have been held in 1995 in Vienna (Austria), in 1997 in Budapest (Hungary), in 1998 in Goth- burg (Sweden), in 1999 in Pori (Finland), in 2000 in Copenhagen (Denmark), in 2001 in Limerick (Ireland), in 2002 in Nuremberg (Germany), in 2003 in Graz (Austria), in 2004 in Trondheim (Norway), in 2005 in Budapest (Hungary), in 2006 in Joensuu (Finland), and in 2007 in Potsdam (Germany). EuroSPI has established an experience library (library.eurospi.net), which will be c- tinuously extended over the next few years and was made available to all attendees. EuroSPI has also started an umbrella initiative for establishing a European Quali- cation Network in which different SPINs and national ventures can join mutually beneficial collaborations (EQN - EU Leonardo da Vinci network project). With a general assembly on 15.-16.10.2007 through EuroSPI partners and n- works, in collaboration with the European Union (supported by the EU Leonardo da Vinci Programme), a European certification association has been created (www.- certificates.org) for the IT and services sector to offer SPI knowledge and certificates to industry, establishing close knowledge transfer links between research and industry.

C. Amting Directorate General Information Society, European Commission, Brussels Under the 4th Framework of European Research, the European Systems and Soft ware Initiative (ESSI) was part of the ESPRIT Programme. This initiative funded more than 470 projects in the area' of software and system process improvements. The majority of these projects were process improvement experiments carrying out and taking up new development processes, methods and technology within the software development process of a company. In addition, nodes (centres of exper tise), European networks (organisations managing local activities), training and dissemination actions complemented the process improvement experiments. ESSI aimed at improving the software development capabilities of European enterprises. It focused on best practice and helped European companies to develop world class skills and associated technologies to build the increasingly complex and varied systems needed to compete in the marketplace. The dissemination activities were designed to build a forum, at European level, to exchange information and knowledge gained within process improvement ex periments. Their major objective was to spread the message and the results of experiments to a wider audience, through a variety of different channels. The European Experience Exchange ~UR~X) project has been one of these dis semination activities within the European Systems and Software Initiative.~UR~X has collected the results of practitioner reports from numerous workshops in Europe and presents, in this series of books, the results of Best Practice achieve ments in European Companies over the last few years.

Since 1990 the International Workshop on Software Measurement (IWSM) has been celebrated annually in Montr´ eal (Qu´ ebec), Canada, and di?erent places all over Germany by turns. The Montr´ eal editions were organized by the Soft- 1 ´ ware Engineering Research Laboratory (GELOG) of the Ecole de technologie ´ sup´ erieure (ETS) at the University of Qu´ ebec at Montr´ eal (UQAM), which is directed by Professor Alain Abran. The German editions were organized 2 jointly by the Software Measurement Laboratory (SMLAB) of the Otto-von- Guericke-UniversityMagdeburg,Germany,whichisdirectedbyProfessorReiner R. Dumke; and the German-speaking user association for software metrics and 3 e?ort estimation (DASMA e. V.) . Partially, the editions of IWSM were held jointly with the DASMA Software Metrik Kongress (MetriKon). 4 Organized by an initiative of Jos´ e Javier Dolado from the University of 5 the Basque Country at San Sebastian and Juan J. Cuadrado-Gallego from the University of Alcal´ a in Madrid the ?rst edition of the International Conference onSoftwareMeasurement(Mensura) couldbe convenedin C´ adiz,Spainin 2006. Motivated by this success and with the ?rst edition of Mensura ?nding special approval, the organizers of IWSM and Mensura decided to complement each other and, thus, to organize the next conference edition together. In November 2007, the typical convention month for both conferences, that joint conference was held in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

On behalf of the PROFES Organizing Committee we are proud to present to you the proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Product Focused Software Process Improvement (PROFES 2005), held in Oulu, Finland. Since 1999, PROFES has established itself as one of the recognized inter- tional software process improvement conferences. Thepurposeoftheconferenceistobringtolightthemostrecent?ndingsand results in the area and to stimulate discussion between researchers, experienced professionals,andtechnologyproviders.Thelargenumberofparticipantscoming from industry con?rms that the conference provides a variety of up-to-date t- ics and tackles industry problems. The main theme of PROFES is professional software process improvement (SPI) motivated by product and service quality needs. SPI is facilitated by software process assessment, software measurement, process modeling, and technology transfer. It has become a practical tool for quality software engineering and management. The conference addresses both the solutions found in practice and the relevant research results from academia. This is re?ected in the 42 full papers, which are – as in the years before – a well-balanced mix of academic papers as well as industrial experience reports. The business of developing new applications like mobile and Internet services orenhancingthefunctionalityofavarietyofproductsusingembeddedsoftwareis rapidlygrowing,maturingandmeetingtheharshbusinessrealities.Theaccepted papers focusing on wireless and the Internet are grouped into a special “mobile and wireless” session. WewishtothankVTTElectronics,theUniversityofOuluincludingInfotech, and Fraunhofer IESE for supporting the conference. We are also grateful to the authors for high-quality papers, the Program Committee for their hard work in reviewing the papers, the Organizing Committee for making the event possible, and all the numerous supporters who helped in organizing this conference.
