Abstract:

As part of an effort to improve the development and maintenance processes for AEGIS computer programs at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division, a software measurement program has been initiated. The measurement program is based on a structure representing the process employed, the products involved, the resources required, and the management controls specified. A standard set of attributes is defined across the software engineering entities as a means of obtaining complete measurement coverage. A life-cycle process model is specified to standardize the collection of required data. Then a set of measures that spans the entities and attributes and a method for validation of the defined measures is described. The defined measures are intended to be employed as part of a mechanism to provide the objective management necessary to support continuous improvement of AEGIS lifetime processes.
