A Proactive Approach to Support Risk Management in Software Projects using Multi-agent Systems

Thayse Alencar, Mariela Cortés, Nécio Veras, Lui Magno

Abstract

Software project management is a complex and demanding task full of threats or negative risks that lead to the delay or the failure of the project. Risks stem from many different internal sources as well as external ones in the company and the project. In addition, these events can originate in any phase of the project life cycle, and thereby increase the complexity of the decisions for the project manager. Aiming to reduce the negative consequences caused by these events, we propose an approach that extends a multi-agent system to provide support for risk management in software projects by using metrics and contingency reserves. The approach is evaluated with a feasibility study demonstrating that agent-oriented approaches are promising solutions that support risk management processes.
