Description
Description: A review of consulting studies shows that companies that are successfully improving quality and schedules are the ones with the best measurements; function point analysis provides analysts with one extra frame of reference to gauge completeness of known user requirements; breaking down algorithms into functional components is a repeatable and reliable way to measure size and complexity, estimate cost, and develop schedule; the Software Technology Support Center at Hill AFB, Utah, developed a process that logically groups the SEI's CMMI measurement steps by activity type; statistical process control can provide valuable information that is used in defect prevention and lessons learned during software development; findings show that simple semantic changes eliminate inconsistencies and make function points easier to learn.

Summary
Summary: CrossTalk, The Journal of Defense Software Engineering, is an approved U.S. Department of Defense journal. CrossTalk's mission is to encourage the engineering development of software in order to improve the reliability, sustainability, and responsiveness of our warfighting capability and to inform and educate readers on up-to-date policy decisions and new software engineering technologies.

Table of Contents
Table of Contents: Software Measurement: Software Measurement Programs and Industry Leadership; by Capers Jones. A review of consulting studies shows that companies that are successfully improving quality and schedules are the ones with the best measurements -- Applying Function Point Analysis to Requirements Completeness; by Carol Dekkers and Mauricio Aguiar. Function point analysis provides analysts with one extra frame of reference to gauge completeness of known user requirements -- Measure Size, Complexity of Algorithms Using Function Points; by Nancy Redgate and Charles B. Tichenor. Breaking down algorithms into functional components is a repeatable and reliable way to measure size and complexity, estimate cost, and develop schedule -- The Nine-Step Metrics Program; by Timothy K. Perkins. The Software Technology Support Center at Hill AFB, Utah, developed a process that logically groups the SEI's CMMI measurement steps by activity type -- Best Practices: CMM Level 4 Quantitative Analysis and Defect Prevention; by Al Florence. Statistical process control can provide valuable information that is used in defect prevention and lessons learned during software development -- Open Forum: Evolving Function Points; by Lee Fischman. Findings show that simple semantic changes eliminate inconsistencies and make function points easier to learn.
