Complex requirements, ever shorter development periods and increasing cost pressure – productivity is an issue of increasing importance in software development. This is the starting point for my book project "Productivity and Performance Measurement – Measurability and Methods".

To try to improve the productivity of software develop-ers, many approaches have been suggested (e.g., Extreme Programming [3]). A few approaches have been aimed more speci cally at improving productivity.

The most notable of these is the Personal Software Process (PSP), which aims to help individuals improve their skills and quality of workCited by: The better the software development community becomes at creating software, the more software the world seems to demand.

Although there is a large body of research about measuring and investigating productivity from an organizational point of view, there is a paucity of research about how software developers, those at the front-line of software construction, think [ ]Cited by: Software productivity is a deceptively simple concept, but a matter of some debate.

Although its earliest measurement was in lines of code per man-hours worked, a better definition is the ratio between the functional value of software produced to the labor and expense of producing it.

There are. Efficiency killers, getting hung up on the wrong things, testing issues and more - Intuitus consultant and software expert Paddy Falls looks at how software companies can remove the blocks and boost their productivity.

Many software businesses are frustrated by a decline in the productivity of their software development teams. Developer time doesn't come cheap -- yet in some shops, maintaining developer productivity can be a struggle. Justin James discusses a number of ways to remove the obstacles that may be keeping Author: Justin James.

Tosho is a software engineer with extensive experience in building teams and developing complex cloud solutions & enterprise web applications. “In order to offer better service to our clients, in the last few years I have been researching about software development productivity and efficiency.

My findings are simple ”. In this preface to Improving Software Development Productivity: Effective Leadership and Quantitative Methods in Software Management, Randall Jensen Productivity impacts of software complexity and developer experience book his book, which will help you measure your organization's capacity and productivity, and then use that information to improve multiple facets of developer and Productivity impacts of software complexity and developer experience book performance, and to build more accurate estimates and schedules.

While these measurements are valuable to compare certain aspects of productivity, we argue that they miss the many other factors that influence the success and Productivity impacts of software complexity and developer experience book of a software developer, such as the fragmentation of their work, their experience, and so on.

A developer who spends the workday with writing a high-quality test-case or. Yes, it impacts productivity deeply. Just a quick-and-dirty ballpark estimate: [put in any software] when constantly throwing new developers onto the task.

Just think about what the documentation should look like, when trying to succeed with such a high turnover. Depending on project complexity and his experience, a dev needs something. Productivity impacts of software complexity and developer experience book A simple search on the matter will yield many results from developers who adamantly oppose any form of quantitive metric for assessing developer performance.

complexity, team climate and team cohesion have an impact on software development team productivity. List of factors affecting the software development team productivity are studied and.

Take an average software developer earning $90, (based on US labor statistics)2 Currently they spend a quarter of their time debugging, costing $22, in wages.

Reducing that by two thirds, creates a saving of $15, and increasing available developer time. Figure 2: Spend more on development and less on debug with reversible debuggingFile Size: KB.

Why do software problems raised at a NATO Conference on Software Engineering still persist in much of the software development industry today, some 40 years later.

In this chapter from ">Improving Software Development Productivity: Effective Leadership and Quantitative Methods in Software Management, Randy Jensen takes a look at at the main issues that continue to plague software.

The book Improving Software Development Productivity contains practices, models and case studies to quantitatively support adoption of agile software development. An Author: Ben Linders. Empirically, software with higher complexity metrics, such as cyclomatic complexity, are harder to maintain.

There is research supporting this dating back to the s ("Program Complexity and Programmer Productivity", E.T. Chen).There is also work that suggests that complexity density, which is cyclomatic complexity over size of the system also relates to maintenance time ("Cyclomatic.

By Apps, if you meant tools, here is a list we use in our team, the technology specific tools of course will differ based on the technology: Windows Tools - 7Zip - - NimbleText - NotePad++. Superior software productivity requires a relentless focus on people, motivation, and communication.

In Improving Software Development Productivity, world-renowned software engineering expert Dr. Randall W. Jensen introduces a proven, quantitative approach to achieving this focus. Jensen helps you measure your organization’s capacity and productivity, and then use that information to improve Cited by: 2.

Many agile software development experts agree that a software development team is a complex adaptive system, because it is made up of multiple interacting parts within a boundary, with the capacity to change and learn from experience.

[Highsmith ] [Schwaber ] [Larman ] [Anderson ] [Augustine ]. Programming productivity (also called software productivity or development productivity) describes the degree of the ability of individual programmers or development teams to build and evolve software tivity traditionally refers to the ratio between the quantity of software produced and the cost spent for it.

Here the delicacy lies in finding a reasonable way to define software. Keywords— productivity, perceptions, software developers I. INTRODUCTION Understanding, measuring and optimizing software develop-ers’ productivity is important to deliver software on time and at reasonable cost and quality.

Previous work introduced numerous measures of productivity that vary by their focus on specific out. Software product lines provide an efficient way to manage software reuse and to handle the high complexity.

Consequently, they are widely distributed in large and high-technological environments. Description In Improving Software Development Productivity, legendary software engineering expert Dr.

Randall Jensen introduces a proven quantitative approach to achieving high productivity through management support, the ability to communicate, and demonstrates how to measure organizational capacity and productivity, and use that information to build more accurate estimates Availability: Live.

As we discuss elsewhere in this book, measuring software developers' productivity is challenging, and likely no single metric will do (see Chapters 2 and 3).This problem also afflicts researchers in knowledge work, yet they have made progress on the problem by developing a breadth of Author: Emerson R.

Murphy-Hill, Stefan Wagner. Productivity: In general we say, productivity = output/input; but, to me, in software development or any intellectual profession this equation cannot outline the real productivity.

For example, an analyst may take several days to design a software architecture (like- relational model) which visible output may be one or two pages. Abstract. In all areas of professional work, there is are a lot of different factors that influence productivity.

Especially in knowledge work, where we do not have easily and clearly measurable work products, it is difficult to capture these : Stefan Wagner, Emerson R.

Murphy-Hill. It is a good approach to measure the productivity of software development by specific metrics, which reveal the strong points of your team, and allow excluding bottlenecks and possible failures. These metrics can be subdivided into three groups: 1. BMazurek asks: "I'm stumped by how to explain software development complexity (not theoretical big-O notation, that's easy) to it comes to people who aren't in the code, my explanations fall flat.

It's not that the people I'm talking to are stupid, they're quite honestly people at the top of their respective (non-tech) fields.4/5(). We evaluate the relative productivity impacts from accumulating specialized experience in a system, diversified experience in related and unrelated systems, and experience from working with others on modification requests (MRs) in a telecommunications firm, which uses an incremental software development by:   Visual Studio is helping developers conquer complexity and deliver high quality software more frequently.

Recent improvements to Visual Studio. Instead of developer productivity, their primary interest is a stable build pipeline. This sole focus on stability creates a risk-averse process and very slow rollout of anything that could impact the stability of the build — such as new features that make the build faster, new build technology, or code refactorings.

Due to several factors we lose productivity. Less productivity means business loss. Going forward it breaks business bonding. Let us discuss the key areas which can help you to increase productivity of a software developer. Focus on Primary Skills. While assigning a job know well which category of job is well fit for which category of Employees/5(2).

Reducing Software Product Size or Complexity The most significant way to improve economic results is usually to achieve a software solution with the minimum amount of human-generated source material. Our experience shows that managing scope, raising the level of abstraction through component-based technology, and using visual.

For brevity, we will touch only upon these four areas: (defined in the book “Pattern-Oriented Software. After pdf, the need for a product like JRebel was predicated on the shortcomings of the Java Development Toolkit pdf and the weird way in which classloaders behaved.

It seemed that ZeroTurnaround -- a seller of software development tools based in Boston and Tartu, Estonia -- lived with uncertainty hanging over its head, as all it would take is a new release of the JDK in which Sun or Oracle.

Complexity is a direct indicator of software quality and costs: if the complexity for any code is high, the quality of that code will be lower and it will cost more to manage it.

Complexity measuremenAuthor: Ben Linders. The first book in ebook series first explains a practicable definition of productivity for software development and thus shows the conditions under which productivity can be measured at all.

It describes the ISO/IEC standard as an important common basis for all modern function-oriented measurement methods.
