By Capers Jones

Going the place no e-book on software program size and metrics has formerly long gone, this critique completely examines a few undesirable size practices, damaging metrics, and large gaps and omissions within the software program literature that overlook very important issues in dimension. The ebook covers the key gaps and omissions that have to be stuffed if info approximately software program improvement is to be invaluable for comparisons or estimating destiny projects.


Among the more severe gaps are leaks in reporting approximately software program improvement efforts that, if no longer corrected, can distort information and make benchmarks nearly lifeless and probably even damaging. essentially the most universal leaks is that of unpaid time beyond regulation. software program is a really labor-intensive profession, and plenty of practitioners paintings very lengthy hours. even if, few businesses truly checklist unpaid time beyond regulation. which means software program attempt is underreported by means of round 15%, that's too huge a price to disregard. different resources of leaks contain the paintings of part-time experts who come and pass as wanted. There are dozens of those experts, and their mixed attempt can best forty five% of overall software program attempt on huge projects.


The booklet is helping software program venture managers and builders discover blunders in measurements to allow them to improve significant benchmarks to estimate software program improvement efforts. It examines diversifications in a couple of parts that come with:



  • Programming languages

  • Development methodology

  • Software reuse

  • Functional and nonfunctional requirements

  • Industry type

  • Team measurement and experience

Filled with tables and charts, this booklet is a kick off point for making measurements that replicate present software program improvement practices and realities to reach at significant benchmarks to steer winning software program tasks.
