It is important for project stakeholders to identify the states of projects and quality of products. Although metrics are useful for identifying them, it is difficult for project stakeholders to select appropriate metrics and determine the purpose of measuring metrics. We propose an approach that defines the measured metrics by GQM method, and supports identifying tendency in projects and products based on Trend Pattern. Additionally, we implement a tool as a Jenkins Plugin which to visualizes an evaluation results based on GQM method. We perform an experiment with OSS and industrial case study with two software development projects. In our experiment, we can identify the problem and project tendency. In our industrial case study, we can also identify the problem that project contains. As our future work, we will adopt our approach and GQM Plugin to software development project continuously to assess their effectiveness in the long term.1.
