Experience Based Software Process Improvement: Have We Found the Silver Bullet?
ABSTRACT Software product quality is colossally dependent upon the software development process. Software engineers have always been
experimenting with various models in an endeavor to improve upon their software processes. Recently a new area of software
process improvement through experience management has got attention of the software engineering community and developers are
experimenting with experience management to improve software process. Though literature is abound with studies of problems
faced by software organizations and strategies adopted by these firms but there is dearth of literature suggesting how experience
and its management can support SPI efforts in an organization. This paper explores the role of experience management in mitigating
the effects of software crisis and investigates the current state of EM in Indian software engineering environment.
