Time Pressure in Software Engineering: A Systematic Literature Review

01/17/2019 ∙ by Miikka Kuutila, et al. ∙ 0

Large project overruns and overtime work have been reported in the software industry. Experiments and case studies have investigated the relationship between time pressure and software quality and productivity. Our search strategy examined 5,332 papers and identified 88 papers as having relevant contributions related to time pressure in a software engineering. Our review investigated definitions, metrics, and causes of time pressure. Also, we map the papers to process phases and approaches. Last, we summarize the effects of time pressure on quality and productivity. The majority of the reported results support the outcome of reduced quality and increased productivity with time pressure.
