Applied Software Measurement: Global Analysis of Productivity and Quality.

Applied Software Measurement book.

Chapter 3 United States Averages for Software Productivity and Quality. Capers Jones is a renowned author, consultant, and speaker.

Applied software measurement: assuring productivity and quality . Jones seeks to cover all of the broad and most of the specific topics associated with starting a full corporate measurement program that encompasses productivity, quality, and human factors. This objective places the book nearer to Grady and Caswell than to Conte, Dunsmore, and Shen in the spectrum of software measurement books. Chapter 5, Measuring Software Quality and User Satisfaction, outlines five steps to software quality control, with an overview of various technical and organizational approaches to improving software quality.

This "bible" of software metrics is designed for software engineers and developers, IS managers, and others charged with performance improvement and quality control. Includes information on software metrics in relation to object technology, client/server architecture, multimedia, software reusability, and reengineering and outsourcing. Provides useful comparisons of function points with DeMarco "bang" metrics, feature points, and the British Mark II function point method. The case studies and statistics presented are drawn from corporate and government projects. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

I could neither read the book cover to cover nor expect anyone will accomplish this with sanity. This book is written as a text book that student will buy class notes instead or a self-promotion material which left untouched; Almost all supporting material are assembled from various sources. The author claim it's done to protect its customer's privacy but the result does not make sense and appear to be too much artificial. Besides the lack of "real" hard evidence to demostrate the author's theory, there are too many opinions from places to places. We don't assume a cause of an event by collecting opinions from a group of people. Only an controled experient can proof a theory. Over all the book is poorly written. However, it serve as a good weapon through corporate ladder. It can be uses in two way. Pick it up and hit someone. Its hard cover and weight can result a deadly attack. Otherwise one can pick up technical terms through out the book and make anyone in front of you shut up.
What's good about this book: The mention of function point vs lines of code. The importance of software measurement and it's value. Lastly, it provide you an template of basline report if the CEO ever ask.
What put this book useless: neither example nor explaination on how to calculate function point from a spec or project files. The detailed work require too much labor to accomplish.
Conclusion: a minimum software measurement is essential to evaluate a team's performance. a size of code / bug rate and few other key variables can show the quality and progress of an project. Thus a project schedule can be forcasted and updated. But we need to ask if the author had pushed the case to the extreme so the business solely based on selling measurment report like himself can exist and keep sucking our money.

It's hard to encapsulate in a few words what this book has done for me since I've started reading it. If you're part of any stage of your company's development cycle and care about the quality of the products you deliver ... this is a must read. Chris Showers Inmar Enterprises

I bought this book as a suppliment to Software Engineering Economics, by Boehm, because of it's later publication date. However, once I read the book I believe that the Boehm should be a suppliment to this work. Before reading this book I was unfamiliar with function points. We are now implementing them in our company. If this book does not bridge the gap between technical and management it goes a long way toward that end.
