1. Probability and Statistics 1 INTRODUCTION
2. Statistics is the science of conducting studies to collect, organize, summarize, analyze, and draw conclusions from data. The mathematics of the collection, organization, and interpretation of numerical data, especially the analysis of population characteristics from sample datasets. 2 STATISTICS
3. Software Measurements  Establishment of Measurements, Analysis and Forecasting of future events. For Example; • Measurement of Bugs Density • Measurement of Invalid Processing of Bugs • Measurement of Bugs reported by client • Measurement of Project Issues • Measurement of rejected Baseline requests 3 STATISTICAL SOFTWARE ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF STATISTICS IN S.E.
4. Quality Management  Statistical methods for quality control  Analysis of Bugs, NCs and Issues 4 STATISTICAL SOFTWARE ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF STATISTICS IN S.E.
5. Analysis of results of surveys Quantitative Research Methodology  Descriptive Statistics  Correlation  Regression  Hypothesis Testing Quality Control  P Charts, Control Charts 5 STATISTICAL SOFTWARE ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF STATISTICS IN GENERAL
6. Analysis of computation of algorithms  Complexity and Performance Analysis of Network traffic Analysis of CPU and Memory utilization Progress reporting to top Management  Graphs and Charts Prediction and Forecasting of future events 6 STATISTICAL SOFTWARE ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF STATISTICS IN GENERAL
7. Development of research Instruments  Reliability Analysis  Validity Analysis Analysis of quality of software 7 STATISTICAL SOFTWARE ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF STATISTICS IN GENERAL
8. Inferential Statistics • Inferential statistics consists of generalizing from samples to populations, performing hypothesis tests, determining relationships among variables, and making predictions. Descriptive Statistics • Descriptive statistics consists of the collection, organization, summarization, and presentation of data • Charts, Graphs, Tables, Mean, Median, Mode etc Types of Statistics 8
9. A variable is a characteristic or attribute that can assume different values.  For Example, if the duration of 30 activities were measured, then duration would be a variable. 9 VARIABLE
10. 10 QUALITATIVE VARIABLES Qualitative variables are variables that can be placed into distinct categories, according to some characteristic or attribute. e.g. Gender, Geographical Location of team, Nature of Project, Designation of employee QUANTITATIVE VARIABLES Quantitative variables are numerical and can be ordered or ranked. e.g. Professional Experience of Employee (in years), Budget of Project, No. of bugs in a release. CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES
11. Quantitative variables can be further classified into two groups:  Discrete and Continuous 11 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES QUANTITATIVE VARIABLES
12. Discrete variables can be assigned values such as 0, 1, 2, 3 and are said to be countable. e.g.  No. of software projects completed by a company  No. of software engineers in a team (in matrix based organization) 12 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES 1. DISCRETE VARIABLES
13. Continuous variables can assume an infinite number of values between any two specific values. They often include fractions and decimals. e.g.  Budget of a software project  Computed Bugs Density against a release/build 13 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES 2. CONTINUOUS VARIABLES
14. In addition to being classified as qualitative or quantitative, variables can be classified by how they are categorized, counted, or measured. Measurement Scale has four types:  Nominal  Ordinal  Interval  Ratio 14 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES w.r.t. MEASUREMENTS
15. The nominal level of measurement classifies data into mutually exclusive (non-overlapping) categories in which no order or ranking can be imposed on the data.  e.g. Gender  Projects completed by company  Skills of Employee  Cities 15 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES w.r.t. MEASUREMENTS 1. NOMINAL LEVEL OF MEASUREMENT
16. Dichotomous is a special type of Nominal variable that comprises only two possible values.  E.g. Gender (Male, Female)  Unit Test Result ( Pass, Fail)  Sanity Testing Result ( Pass, Fail) 16 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES w.r.t. MEASUREMENTS 1.1 DICHOTOMOUS
17. The ordinal level of measurement classifies data into categories that can be ranked. Mutually exclusive groups + order  E.g. Severity of Bugs ( Level-1, Level- 2, Level-3, Level-4)  Priority of Change Request ( High, Medium, Low) 17 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES w.r.t. MEASUREMENTS 2. ORDINAL LEVEL OF MEASUREMENT
18. The interval level of measurement ranks data. Precise differences between Interval and Ratio measure do exist; however, there is no meaningful zero. Interval variables have ordered categories that are equally spaced.  E.g. Temperature (73 oF)  Calculated Bugs Density 18 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES w.r.t. MEASUREMENTS 3. INTERVAL LEVEL OF MEASUREMENT
19. The ratio level of measurement possesses all the characteristics of interval measurement, and there exists a true zero.  E.g. No. of Bugs  Estimated Effort for new project  Duration of Project  Delay of schedule 19 CLASSIFICATION OF VARIABLES w.r.t. MEASUREMENTS 4. RATIO LEVEL OF MEASUREMENT
20. Nominal Variable  Nominal Ordinal Variable  Ordinal Interval & Ratio Variables  Scale 20 TYPES OF VARIABLES IN SPSS
21. Data  Data are the values (measurements or observations) that the variables can assume. Data Set  A collection of data values forms a data set. Each value in the data set is called a data value or a datum. 21 SOME MORE DEFINITIONS
22. Population  A population consists of all subjects (human or otherwise) that are being studied. Sample  A sample is a group of subjects selected from a population. 22 SOME MORE DEFINITIONS
23. Read the following HR policy of a software house regarding annual increments of employees, and answer the questions.  Employees who meet their deadlines 95- 100% of the time usually receive Rs. 20k as an increment in their salary. Employees who meet their deadline 80-90% of the time usually receive Rs. 10k, and employees who meet their deadlines less than 80% of the time usually receive Rs. 5k as an increment in their salary. 23 CASE STUDY NO. 1 (HR POLICY)
24. Based on this information, ‘Meeting deadlines’ and ‘Annual increments’ are related. The more you meet deadlines, the more likely it is you will receive a higher increment. If you improve your performance and meet deadlines of maximum tasks, your annual increment will probably improve. 24 CASE STUDY NO. 1 (HR POLICY)
25. 1. What are the variables under study? 2. What are the data in the study? 3. Are descriptive, inferential, or both types of statistics used? 4. What is the population under study? 5. Was a sample collected? If so, from where? 6. From the information given, comment on the relationship between the variables. 25 CASE STUDY NO. 1 (HR POLICY) QUESTIONS
26. 1. The variables are ‘Meeting deadlines’ and ‘Annual Increments’ 2. The data consists of ‘Percentage of Meeting Deadlines’ and ‘Amount of increments’ 3. These are descriptive statistics; however, inference statement is also present (i.e. Based on this information, ‘Meeting deadlines’ and ‘Annual increments’ are related). So these are also inferential statistics. 26 CASE STUDY NO. 1 (HR POLICY) ANSWERS
27. 4. The population under study is the employees of software house. 5. Not specified 6. Based on the data, it appears that, in general, the better you meet deadlines, the higher will be your annual increment. 27 CASE STUDY NO. 1 (HR POLICY) ANSWERS
28.  Quality Management department of a software house has published the number of open bugs of five ‘In- Progress’ software projects, during Annual Quality review meeting. 28 CASE STUDY NO. 2 (PROJECTS QUALITY) Project Name No. of Open Bugs Project 1 500 Project 2 600 Project 3 350 Project 4 265 Project 5 1325
29.  1. What are the variables under study? 2. Categorize each variable as quantitative or qualitative. 3. Categorize each quantitative variable as discrete or continuous. 4. Identify the level of measurement for each variable. 29 CASE STUDY NO. 2 (PROJECTS QUALITY) QUESTIONS
30. 5. ‘Project 4’ shows minimum number of ‘Open Bugs’. Does that mean ‘Project 4’ is most successful project among all 5 projects? 30 CASE STUDY NO. 2 (PROJECTS QUALITY) QUESTIONS
31.  1. The variables are ‘Project Name’ and ‘No. of Open Bugs’. 2. ‘Project Name’ is a Qualitative variable, while ‘No. of Open Bugs’ is quantitative variable. 3. The ‘No. of Open Bugs’ is Discrete variable. 4. ‘Project Name’ is Nominal, while ‘No. of Open Bugs’ is ratio. 31 CASE STUDY NO. 2 (PROJECTS QUALITY) ANSWERS
32. 5. ‘Project 4’ shows minimum number of ‘Open Bugs’: However, there may be other things to consider, Size of Project, Schedule of Project, Compliance with client requirements. Therefore, it is not necessary that a project with minimum Open bugs is most successful project of company. 32 CASE STUDY NO. 2 (PROJECTS QUALITY) ANSWERS
