Going the place no e-book on software program size and metrics has formerly long gone, this critique completely examines a couple of undesirable size practices, unsafe metrics, and enormous gaps and omissions within the software program literature that overlook very important themes in size. The publication covers the key gaps and omissions that have to be crammed if information approximately software program improvement is to be necessary 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 facts and make benchmarks nearly lifeless and doubtless even destructive. the most universal leaks is that of unpaid time beyond regulation. software program is a really labor-intensive career, and plenty of practitioners paintings very lengthy hours. despite the fact that, few businesses really checklist unpaid extra time. which means software program attempt is underreported via round 15%, that is too huge a cost to disregard. different resources of leaks comprise the paintings of part-time experts who come and move 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 publication is helping software program undertaking managers and builders discover error in measurements to allow them to boost significant benchmarks to estimate software program improvement efforts. It examines adaptations in a couple of components that come with:



  • Programming languages

  • Development methodology

  • Software reuse

  • Functional and nonfunctional requirements

  • Industry type

  • Team dimension and experience

Filled with tables and charts, this e-book is a kick off point for making measurements that mirror present software program improvement practices and realities to reach at significant benchmarks to steer winning software program initiatives.
