Eric de Backer is a Master student at the TU Delft.
This thesis introduces Erix, Empirical Research Infrastructure for Clustered Software. Erix supports the setup and execution of software measurement research, a special type of empirical research that conducts and analyzes software measurements. The goal of Erix is to reduce the costs of software measurement experiments by the use of automation. Besides, several other goals have been accomplished: support for replication and aggregation of experiments, reuse of research definitions, use of standard measurement and analysis tools and automated storage of experiment results. Furthermore, Erix has been tested with a case study and it does what it is intended to.
