Many aspects of software products, projects, and processes can be measured.
Some broad areas include:
Project Team Metrics
Development Team Metrics
The problem with measuring software development is the lack of clear distinction between spec development and coding. To me, spec development continues throughout the lifecycle of the program, even after it has been delivered.
If someone wants a definitive time, you could measure the amount of time it takes to burn a CD once the app has been developed. ;)
I think too many people try to think of software developement like building something our of materials instead of like writing a book.
Can some book authors chime in? Is this a good compairason?
