Three Project Productivity and Performance and Estimation Reports for the price of two:
Software Project Characteristics that Impact Productivity
This report highlights that there are a host of project characteristics and risk factors to consider when estimating software projects or benchmarking their productivity. It is important to carefully analyse these to ensure that you are comparing “apples with apples” or to allow for them by adjusting any estimate derived from a broad range of projects.
Techniques & Tools – Analysis Report II
In this report in addition to Project Delivery Rate we provide information about Speed of Delivery; Defect Density; Team Sizes and any changes in project Phase Ratios that have resulted from the use of a technique or tool. We also provide a comparison with research done by Capers Jones of SPR.
Performance of Real-time, Business Application & Component Software Projects
This forty-eight page report provides valuable insight into the development and enhancement performance of three different types of applications: Business, Real-Time and Infrastructure. The results underline the importance of treating these three types of applications differently when estimating and benchmarking. Project Delivery Rates and Duration times are provided along with useful charts of the correlations of Effort, Productivity and Duration to software size. The productivity rates of different Programming Languages are compared, as is the impact of software size on productivity.
