Abstract:

Both the theoretical and practical aspects of costing extensions of technology are addressed. A method for measuring the level of technology embodied in a system is developed. The increment in technology represented by a development project is found to be highly correlated with development time. Development time is then broken down into normal and abnormal components, which are found to be correlated with development cost. Cost control methods are developed.
