ABSTRACT
Summary form only given, as follows. The software engineering laboratory (SEL) at Goddard space flight center has determined five key benefits to the collection of software metrics. The benefits are: (1) they provide a keener understanding of the specific software development environment; (2) they add support to management of active development projects; (3) they produce a foundation for planning future projects; (4) they provide a basis for adopting development practices and/or guidelines, and (5) they produce evidence toward assessment of applied software technology.
