Abstract

Developing areas in China are attracting increasing investment in manufacturing. This has increased the local demand for software and, consequently, demands on local software teams. Such teams, typically small, inexperienced and suffer high personnel turnover, often produce defective products. As software process improvement models are unsuitable for such teams, research was conducted applying a test-driven development (TDD) approach. TDD quickly improved the overall team performance. Our findings are applicable in other Asian developing countries.
