Abstract or Description
This document contains a proposed set of defined software project performance measures and influence factors that can be used by software development projects so that valid comparisons can be made between completed projects. These terms and definitions were developed using a collaborative, consensus-based approach involving the Software Engineering Institute's Software Engineering Process Management program and service provider and industry experts in the area of software project performance measurement. This document will be updated over time as feedback is obtained about its use.
