If we can depict our development standard by UML model and load it on a software factory engine which controls projects as we modelled, we'll be able to control over projects more effectively and make them more predictable. We named this concept as Model-Driven Adaptive Development (MDAD) and have been conducting researches. On the other hand Japanese SI'ers already have an insight that off shoring is to be one of the essential factors to maintain or gain their competitiveness. But it's not easy to make a valid comparison between off shoring project and domestic project concerning to their productivity and quality. This paper examines two research projects executed in MDAD environment with the same development standard model loaded. One project was executed by only domestic resources in 2008 and the other one by cooperation with offshore resources in 2009. Both projects developed exactly the same in-house system. This analysis based on various measured data of both projects provides quantitative insights into productivity and quality of the off shoring project by comparison with the domestic project, and also exposes some of the prerequisites for executing off shore projects successfully.
