Software Project Management in Distributed Software Development Context

Tania Fatima Calvi Tait, Elisa Hatsue Moriya Huzita

Abstract

Distributed software development (DSD) became a reality in project development involving geographically dispersed teams and brings challenges regarding to software project management (SPM). So, aspects such as infrastructure problems, local organizational culture, time zone and others become part of the concerns of software project management. This paper presents a proposition to manage software projects in DSD context including planning and controlling aspects. Particularly it deals with human resources management, risks and cost’s estimations as well as control of activities, fulfillment of deadlines and resources allocation.
