Measuring the Productivity of Computer Systems Development Activities with Function Points
November 1983 (vol. 9 no. 6)
pp. 648-652
C.A. Behrens, Cooper, Behrens and McMullen, Inc.
The function point method of measuring application development productivity developed by Albrecht is reviewed and a productivity improvement measure introduced. The measurement methodology is then applied to 24 development projects. Size, environment, and language effects on productivity are examined. The concept of a productivity index which removes size effects is defined and an analysis of the statistical significance of results is presented.
Index Terms:
productivity, Development, function points, measurement
