The IT Measurement Compendium: Estimating and Benchmarking by Manfred Bundschuh

By Manfred Bundschuh

The first step in the direction of luck in a software program undertaking is to make sure a certified setup. This features a metrics-based formal estimation approach to make sure a great origin for undertaking making plans. exact estimates require quantitative measurements, preferably software established. moreover, software program undertaking managers should also computer screen and replace those estimates throughout the project’s lifecycle to regulate development and examine attainable hazards.

Based on their a long time of functional adventure as software program managers and experts, Manfred Bundschuh and Carol Dekkers current a framework of worth to a person concerned with software program venture administration. They current all 5 ISO/IEC-acknowledged useful Sizing tools, with editions, studies, counting principles and case reviews, and so they use various sensible examples to teach how one can use sensible dimension dimension to supply real looking estimates.

Written in a hugely sensible type, together with checklists, templates, and hands-on recommendation, and sponsored up with many tips to either nationwide and overseas metrics and criteria enterprises, this publication is the right spouse for the busy software program venture supervisor or caliber coverage manager.

Example text

Availability of appropriate supporting software tools. Availability of historical data: an important prerequisite for the professional application of estimating techniques. Not only must there be availability of historical project data, but also it must be relevant and applicable historical project data. This leads to an estimation paradox: estimates are most relevant and demanded at a point in time when there is a minimal of measurable information (at project initiation), and when one is able to perform the estimation with absolute exactness (at project postmortem) it is no longer required.

X Support the planning process by significant and relevant graphics. x Update project plans by comparing the planned and actual values (akin to Earned Value Management practices). ). x Foster a measurement culture early so that the team understands the significance of reporting all worked hours for the project. x Planning must be as detailed as necessary, but as aggregated as possible. , it is much more efficient to conduct project planning, estimating, and coordinating of measurement practices from a single set of applicable historical data at the same time to minimize inaccurate comparisons, as well as minimize spending double time doing the same historical information retrievals).
