Towards the Definition of Domain-Specific Thresholds

Allan Mori, Eduardo Figueiredo, Elder Cirilo
2017 Anais do Simpósio Brasileiro de Sistemas de Informação (SBSI)  
There are several studies to propose methods to derive thresholds and evaluate them.  ...  However, the effectiveness of the measurement process is directly dependent on the definition of reliable thresholds.  ...  Recently, thresholds have been derived from a set of similar systems, named benchmarks, and calculated based on systematic methods [17] .  ...
