In this paper, we present a "forward-looking" decision support framework that integrates timely metrics data with simulation models of the software development process in order to support the software project management control function. This forward-looking approach provides predictions of project performance and the impact of various management decisions. Tradeoffs among performance measures are accomplished using Outcome Based Control Limits (OBCLs) and are augmented using multi-criteria utility functions …
