Abstract

This document describes a set of software measures that are compatible with the measurement practices described in the Capability Maturity Model for Software. These measures, in the form of software indicators, cover thirteen different categories that include progress, effort, cost, and quality. Each indicator category contains example figures which illustrate behavior that may occur on a project. The text provides users with tips on how to use these figures or similar ones on their projects. Project software managers and software engineering process groups can use these indicators during the software development life cycle to gain insight into the software development process and software process improvement activities. The indicators chosen have been successfully used on projects in the software industry.
