Ranking and Rules for Selecting Two Persons in Pair Programming

Abstract—The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) has been applied in many fields and especially to complex engineering problems and applications. The AHP is capable of structuring decision problems and finding mathematically determined judgments built on knowledge and experience. This suggests that the AHP should prove useful in agile software development, where complex decisions occur routinely. This paper provides a ranking approach to help the XP team to set the rules of pairing two persons for pair programming and proposes several criteria can be used for the AHP evaluation. Two academic and the three-indusial case studies have applied the AHP to decide these rules in pairing.

Index Terms—Extreme Programming; Pair programming; Analytic Hierarchy Process.
