An Empirical Study of eServices Product UML Sizing Metrics
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering, International Symposium on
By Yue Chen, Barry W. Boehm, Ray Madachy, Ricardo Valerdi
Issue Date:August 2004
pp. 199-206
Size is one of the most fundamental measurements of software. For the past two decades, the source line of code (SLOC) and function point (FP) metrics have been dominating software sizing approaches. However both approaches have significant defects. For ex...
Using Empirical Testbeds to Accelerate Technology Maturity and Transition: The SCRover Experience

Issue Date:August 2004
pp. 117-126
<p>This paper is an experience report on a first attempt to develop and apply a new form of software: a full-service empirical testbed designed to evaluate alternative software dependability technologies, and to accelerate their maturation and transi...
The ROI of Software Dependability: The iDAVE Model
Found in: IEEE Software
By Barry Boehm, LiGuo Huang, Apurva Jain, Ray Madachy
Issue Date:May 2004
pp. 54-61
The Information Dependability Attribute Value Estimation model helps users reason about the return on investment of software dependability investments. iDAVE estimates the relative ROI for achieving the desired values for dependability attributes and helps...

By Barry Boehm, Alexander Egyed, Julie Kwan, Dan Port, Archita Shah, Ray Madachy
Issue Date:July 1998
pp. 33-44
At the 1996 and 1997 International Conferences on Software Engineering, three of the six keynote addresses identified negotiation techniques as the most critical success factor in improving the outcome of software projects. The USC Center for Software Engi...
A Software Product Line Life Cycle Cost Estimation Model
Found in: Empirical Software Engineering, International Symposium on
By Barry Boehm, A. Winsor Brown, Ray Madachy, Ye Yang
Issue Date:August 2004
pp. 156-164
Most software product line cost estimation models are calibrated only to local product line data rather than to a broad range of product lines. They also underestimate the return on investment for product lines by focusing only on development vs. life-cycl...
