Today's software projects face an environment of continuous change and evolution. In order to handle evolution in development environments (e.g., requirements, technology) effectively, over the last decades well-established development processes have been adapted significantly and new process models have been proposed. For example, there is a wide range of agile processes which are risk-driven and which not only handle but embrace frequent change. However, agile and risk-driven processes still suffer from a lack of support for automatic and generic identification of certain risks.
In this paper, we present an approach for automatic, finegrained identification of high-risk development artifacts and high-risk-areas within those artifacts that is easy to integrate with common development processes.
The approach has been implemented in a proof-of-concept prototype. First validation results indicate that the approach is highly scalable and provides continuous feedback about a development project's technical risks.
