Abstract—In addition to the strong market demands, software development projects are facing constantly change of requirements from dynamic business context. Striving to meet the project deadline, in budget and maintain quality of systems brings up the importance of development automation. The benefits of continuous integration of agile development have been reported in the academic literatures, however, the consideration on determining the necessary procedures during the implementation and how to quantify the performance and effectiveness on the implementation is not widely discussed. An automation continues integration process was developed in this study. For evaluating on the performance and acceptance of the process implemented, a new evaluation framework was constructed as measurement tool. The analysis and discussions of research result will serve as a reference for the rear researches and for the system development practice on transitioning to agile development.
