Methods of studing programmer productivity are difficult to find. The classical methods of observation and statistical analysis are in many cases inappropriate. This paper describes a simulation approach in which programmers are' considered to be individual processors. Relative group productivity is then measured based upon the productivity levels and communications relationships of the processors.
