Evaluation and Assessment in Software Engineering
12 - 13 April 2010
Background: In the last decade, it was possible to notice a significant increas e in Distributed Software Development approach (DSD). Objective/Method: This research aimed to identify effective models and tools for supporting the DSD management through a systematic literature Review. Results/Conclusion: 25 primary studies reveal that since 2000, the number of studies on DSD has significantly increased, while only few tools have been developed. Therefore, there is a dearth of tools for supporting the overall managerial process on distributed software development.
