Measurement Modeling Technology
May/June 2003 (vol. 20 no. 3)
pp. 68-75

Although rigorous measurement has become a necessity in the software industry, many measurement programs fail to deliver any real benefit to software managers. The required data is often missing or invalid, or it just arrives too late. A properly automated measurement system, however, can deliver timely reports that enable proactive management. The measurement modeling technology (MMT) introduced here supports such automation. It also establishes standard measurements and metrics that organizations can share and combine across projects, departments, and companies.

Index Terms:
metrics, measures, measurement models, measurement protocols, measurement automation.
