Design Measurement: Some Lessons Learned
March/April 1990 (vol. 7 no. 2)
pp. 17-25

The author extracts from several measurement projects some of the important lessons he has learned about measurement in general and design measurement in particular. He synthesizes from these lessons a design-measurement framework in an attempt to communicate his personal measurement experience to other software engineers. The lessons he has learned fall into three areas: (1) how measurement must be applied in individual experiments or case studies; (2) how measurement can help continuously improve an organization's state of the practice; and (3) why measurement requires automated support.
