Summary Iterative software development has become widely practiced in industry. Since modern software projects require fast,incremental delivery for every iteration of software development, it is essential to monitor the execution of an iteration, and foresee acapability to deliver quality products as the iteration progresses. This paper presents a novel, data-driven approach to providingautomated support for project managers and other decision makers in predicting delivery capability for an ongoing iteration. Ourapproach leverages a history of project iterations and associated issues, and in particular, we extract characteristics of previousiterations and their issues in the form of features. In addition, our approach characterizes an iteration using a novel combination oftechniques including feature aggregation statistics, automatic feature learning using the Bag-of-Words approach, and graph-basedcomplexity measures. An extensive evaluation of the technique on five large open source projects demonstrates that our predictivemodels outperform three common baseline methods in Normalized Mean Absolute Error and are highly accurate in predicting theoutcome of an ongoing iteration.
