The procurement of complex software product involves many risks. To properly assess and manage those risks, Bell Canada has developed methods and tools that combine process capability assessment with a static analysis based software product assessment. This paper describes the software product assessment process that is part of our risk management approach. The process and the tools used to conduct a product assessment are described. The assessment is in part based on static source code metrics and inspections. A summary of the lessons learned since the initial implementation in 1993 is provided. Over 20 products totalling more than 100 million lines of code have gone through this process
