What is PCB
Can anybody explain what is PCB(Process Capability Baseline)?
how to make the process activities to baseline??
Re: What is PCB
This is how Infosys defines PCB
Process Capability Baseline (PCB)
Process Capability baseline specifies based on data of past projects, what the performance of the process is, i.e. what a project can expect when following the process. The performance factors of the process are primarily those that relate to quality and productivity. Our process baseline defines the productivity, quality, effort distribution, defect distributions, defect injection rate, cost of quality etc. Using the capability baseline, a project can predict, at a gross level, the effort that will be needed for various stages, the defect densities likely to be observed during various defect detection activities and quality and productivity for the project.
The Process Database is a software engineering database to study the processes at Infosys with respect to productivity and quality. More specifically, its current intents are as follows:
* To aid estimation of effort and defects
* To get the productivity and quality data on different types of projects
* To aid in creating process capability baselines
Re: What is PCB
A process capability baseline would actually be an extension of standard baseline analysis. Here the deal is to use past project data to measure the maturity of the processes. Determine what parameters must be changed to see more robust processes.
We need to go one step beyond here and analyse year on year process performance.
More than just standard measures of productivity, quality , defects etc - one should look plotting one metrics againsthe other year on year and elimiating hte noise. Correlation statistics also help here to define process capability.
