Abstract : This report presents our recommendations for a basic set of software measures that Department of Defense (DoD) organizations can use to help plan and manage the acquisition, development, and support of software systems. These recommendations are based on work that was initiated by the Software Metrics Definition Working Group and subsequently extended by the SEI to support the DoD Software Action Plan. The central theme is the use of checklists to create and record structured measurement descriptions and reporting specifications. These checklists provide a mechanism for obtaining consistent measures from project to project and for communicating unambiguous measurement results.
