Domain analysis is the process of identifying and organizing knowledge abouta class of problems. This guidebook presents a method of performing
experience domain analysis in software development organizations. The
purpose of the guidebook is to facilitate the reader in characterizing two
given development environments, applying domain analysis to model each, and
then applying an evaluation process, based upon the Goal/Metric/Paradigm, to
transfer a given development technology from one of the environments to the
other. This guidebook describes this process and gives an example of its use
within NASA.
