Benchmarking Software-Development Productivity
January/February 2000 (vol. 17 no. 1)
pp. 80-88
This article examines a statistical analysis of a productivity variation involving a unique database containing 206 business software projects from 26 Finnish companies. The authors examine differences in the factors explaining productivity in the banking, insurance, manufacturing, wholesale/retail, and public administration sectors. The authors provide productivity benchmarking equations that are useful both for estimating expected productivity at the start of a new project and for benchmarking a completed project for each business sector.
