Measurement is a key factor for managing and improving software development. This article illustrates the automation of the most expensive phases of a Goal Question Metrics measurement process. In particular, the author describes a tool for the definition, collection, analysis, and feedback of measures, and the techniques to interface this tool with a configuration management system and metrics tools. These techniques have been employed in a measurement program carried out in an industrial setting.
