December 5, 2020 General MetricViews

IFPUG announces that the second semester edition of MetricViews is now available. In this edition you can read the vision of worldwide metric authors. Some of the articles are related to inspiring experiences, such is the case of how the IT department of the SNCF group has developed a new valuation method based on the IFPUG Function Points, or the testimonial of the different uses of the IFPUG method to manage projects in SDM Conseil.

Other articles are related with Agile, such as the art of measuring iterations and measuring the health of squads and tribes; others linked with COVID-19, such as to determine with metrics if the software productivity has increased or decreased during COVID-19; how to manage projects with efficiency during this pandemic period or the importance of the value that IFPUG brings in the requirements phase. IFPUG answers in numbers the productivity and the value that the software provides; those answers cannot be possible without measuring the software size.
