The demand for software products has grown, but the number of quality programmers has not kept pace. Therefore, programmer productivity has become a major area of discussion throughout the software development industry. This paper examines the various measures discussed in the literature and used in selected corporations which develop software. It presents several methods for measuring programmer productivity. Included in the discussion are the salient points where managers must devote special attention if they are to use programmer productivity measures effectively. This paper is part of a group of papers which together provide recommendations to the Fleet Material Support Office FMSO to enhance its software development organization.
