In this paper we present the results of an analysis of the web projects in the ISBSG R10 repository and compare them to nonweb projects. The intent of this analysis is to gain an understanding of any factors that make web projects different, so that project estimation, planning and benchmarking of web projects can be better managed.
There are four main areas of analysis reported in this document:
- A comparison of key project measures – web and non-web project data sets
- Effort by development phase – a comparison – web and non-web projects
- Use of techniques and tools – a comparison – web and non-web projects
- Typical team sizes for web projects.
