This quantity offers a range of the shows from the 1st annual convention on Analytical equipment in software program Engineering Economics held on the MITRE company in McLean, Virginia. The papers are consultant of the problems which are of curiosity to researchers within the economics of data structures and software program engineering economics. The Nineteen Nineties are proposing software program economists with a very tricky set of demanding situations. due to funds concerns, the variety of huge new software program improvement efforts is declining. the first concentration has shifted to concerns in terms of upgrading and migrating current structures. during this surroundings, productiveness bettering methodologies and instruments are of basic curiosity. The MITRE software program Engineering research convention used to be designed to handle a few of th,~ new and tough demanding situations that face our career. the first target of the convention used to be to deal with new theoretical and purposes instructions in software program Engineering Economics, a comparatively new self-discipline that bargains with the administration and keep watch over of all segments of the software program life-cycle. The self-discipline has got a lot visibility within the final twenty-five years end result of the dimension and value issues of many software program improvement and upkeep efforts, really within the Federal govt. We thank all people who helped make this convention successful, particularly those that graciously allowed us to incorporate their paintings during this volume.

Sample text

This metric is increasingly accepted as a meaningful and 43 reliable measure upon which to base an estimate of development effort (Kemerer, 1990; Symons, 1988). We estimated the size of the application at about 373 function points. Table 1 shows the breakdown by task of the function point total. Task Description. The functional specifications for the experimental development project were deSigned in cooperation with First Boston Corporation staff members in advance of engaging the experimental developer.

61 was used for the duration of this experimental development project. During this time, the developer worked in a technically stable development environment. The subject of the experimental application was a First Boston employee with an average knowledge of HPS, based on a little more than six months of experience, and somewhat greater than average programming ability. This person participated in the project on a full-time basis, with the exception of one brief interruption. Experimental Results.

The ROI column indicates that the return on DoD investment that generates the incremental savings is about 17:1. 2 Excursions and Sensitivity Analysis Three excursions from the Current and Achievable scenarios are presented below. They are included here to better illuminate some of the underlying assumptions that generate the results reported above, and the sensitivity of the results to those assumptions. The three excursions are the effect on expenditures and savings of a 3% increase in the growth rate in software demand, the effect on ROI of large decreases in the predicted Fr and FS levels, and the effect of slowing the transfer into use of these software technologies.
