    Functional size measurement is considered a complicated, tedious and time-consuming task when performed manually. Automating FSM is one solution to help in applying it and using it. Another solution is designing simple and easy-to-apply FSM procedures. The Synchronous Languages (SL) are built on solid mathematical foundations and used for correctly designing safety-critical reactive real-time syst... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (324 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Reliability of functional size measurement is very crucial since software management activities such as cost and budget estimations, process benchmarking and project control depend on software size measurements. In order to improve the reliability of functional size measurements, they should be controlled and reviewed at the end of the measurement process. However, manual inspection for detecting ...

    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (197 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The COSMIC method provides a standardized way of measuring the functional size of software from the functional domains commonly referred to as 'business application' or 'Management Information Systems' (MIS) and 'real-time' software, and hybrids of these. In practice it is often sufficient to measure a functional size approximately. Typical situations where such a need arises are early in the life... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (142 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    When reusable software elements are defined in the requirements phase, this raises a number of issues for the measurement of their functional size, when a reusable element implements a business rule or a business sub process, for example. A case study is presented with project functional size measurement data to illustrate the impact of reuse on the resulting size and to determine criteria of reus... View full abstract»

    Although the Agile Software Development (ADS) approach has been around for the last 15 years, it is only recently that attention has moved towards Agile Software Management (ASM) for tackling some of the management-related weaknesses, such as estimating on the basis of User Story points. This paper presents an application of the INVEST criteria (Independent - Negotiable - Valuable - Estimable - Sm... View full abstract»

    The issue of functional size measurement is crucial for software project management, and the instant measurement of functional size from source code might be beneficial for progress tracking. Since it is time-consuming and costly when functional size measurement from source code is done manually, automating the process of measurement came to the fore. In this study, runtime measurement of COSMIC f... View full abstract»

    Large scale measurement systems are hard to build and to maintain. In this paper we propose an architecture blueprint for a federalist Enterprise Measurement Infrastructure (EMI) which helps to address these typical weaknesses of centralistic measurement systems. The EMI is based on the ideas of Service Oriented Measurements. We combined these with modern ideas from the area of Enterprise Applicat... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (612 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Software development practitioners are increasingly interested in adopting agile methods and generally recommend customisation so that the adopted method can fit the organisational reality. Many studies from the literature report agile adoption and customisation experiences but most of them are hardly generalisable and few are metric-based. They therefore cannot provide quantitative evidence of th... View full abstract»

    Background - Validity threats should be considered and consistently reported to judge the value of an empirical software engineering research study. The relevance of specific threats for a particular research study depends on the worldview or philosophical worldview of the researchers of the study. Problem/Gap - In software engineering, different categorizations exist, which leads to inconsistent ... View full abstract»
