A Quantitative Approach to Software Development Using IEEE 982.1
January/February 2007 (vol. 24 no. 1)
pp. 65-72
Norman Schneidewind, Naval Postgraduate School
Although software's complexity and scope have increased tremendously over the past few decades, advances in software engineering techniques have been only moderate at best. Software measurement has remained primarily a labor-intensive effort and thus subject to human limitations. The Space Shuttle's avionics software is an excellent example of how applying standards such as IEEE 982.1 can help alleviate human limitations by providing a quantitative roadmap to answer key questions.
