The development of software products is a complex activity with a large number of factors involved in defining success. As real-world experimentation is difficult and costly, researchers have used various techniques in an attempt to model the development process. This field of software process simulation has received substantial attention over the last twenty years. The aims have been to better understand the software development process and to mitigate the problems that continue to occur in the industry by providing support for management decision making.
