Item description for Foundations of Empirical Software Engineering: The Legacy of Victor R. Basili by Barry Boehm...

This book captures the main scientific contributions of Victor R. Basili, who has significantly shaped the field of empirical software engineering from its very start. He was the first to claim that software engineering needed to follow the model of other physical sciences and develop an experimental paradigm. By working on this postulate, he developed concepts that today are well known and widely used, including the Goal-Question-Metric method, the Quality-Improvement paradigm, and the Experience Factory. He is one of the few software pioneers who can aver that their research results are not just scientifically acclaimed but are also used as industry standards.

On the occasion of his 65th birthday, celebrated with a symposium in his honor at the International Conference on Software Engineering in St. Louis, MO, USA in May 2005, Barry Boehm, Hans Dieter Rombach, and Marvin V. Zelkowitz, each a long-time collaborator of Victor R. Basili, selected the 20 most important research papers of their friend, and arranged these according to subject field. They then invited renowned researchers to write topical introductions. The result is this commented collection of timeless cornerstones of software engineering, hitherto available only in scattered publications.

Reviews - What do customers think about Foundations of Empirical Software Engineering: The Legacy of Victor R. Basili?

Software engineering classic  Jun 21, 2008
Software professionals familiar with process improvement are familiar with the name Victor R Basili. The man and this book are classic and should be on every software engineers bookshelf. I found this book useful and a great foundation for implementing process improvement in any organization. His ideas of experience factory, goal/question/metric paradigm, and the quality improvement paradigm are definitely worth understanding.
