  • June 2009
  • By James Wessel, Robert Ferguson
  • This report summarizes the findings of a study conducted for the Army to find and describe software measurement practices that are being used successfully.
  • Acquisition Support
  • Publisher: Software Engineering Institute
    CMU/SEI Report Number: CMU/SEI-2009-TN-008
  • Abstract

    This technical note identifies and describes successful practices in software measurement that were discovered within a subset of current Army programs. 

    Conducted by the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) on behalf of the Army Strategic Software Improvement Plan (ASSIP), the study highlights software measurement practices that offices found to be valuable for problem identification, tracking, and active control of the program. 

    The intended audience for this report includes Army program managers, senior Army staff, program executive offices, software engineering centers, software engineering directorates, the Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), and the Army test community.
