Release Date: 2006-02-22
Genre: Computers

Often referred to as the “black art” because of its complexity and uncertainty, software estimation is not as difficult or puzzling as people think. In fact, generating accurate estimates is straightforward—once you understand the art of creating them. In his highly anticipated book, acclaimed author Steve McConnell unravels the mystery to successful software estimation—distilling academic information and real-world experience into a practical guide for working software professionals. Instead of arcane treatises and rigid modeling techniques, this guide highlights a proven set of procedures, understandable formulas, and heuristics that individuals and development teams can apply to their projects to help achieve estimation proficiency. Discover how to: Estimate schedule and cost—or estimate the functionality that can be delivered within a given time frame Avoid common software estimation mistakes Learn estimation techniques for you, your team, and your organization * Estimate specific project activities—including development, management, and defect correction Apply estimation approaches to any type of project—small or large, agile or traditional Navigate the shark-infested political waters that surround project estimates When many corporate software projects are failing, McConnell shows you what works for successful software estimation.

Writing software is a curious process, filled with different methodologies, approaches, techniques, frameworks, requirements, tools, roles and people. I mention people last because they have the biggest impact on a project’s outcome. There are fantastic examples of teams that plan and execute beautifully and far more that infamously exist in the mainstream. Most software projects suffer from common maladies, all of which can have a negative impact on your company and career: • Large cost overruns • Significant time delays • Software that doesn’t work as intended or is buggy • Cancelled projects and failures If you are a CTO, project manager, software professional or even a CFO or CEO, involved in a company that develops its own software, then this book is for you. Understanding and recognizing the same old pitfalls that make a software project unhealthy will give you wings. Establishing you as the voice of wisdom and reason and even save your career.

Release Date: 2005
Genre: Computer software

Nicht wenige Software-Projekte erreichen ihre gesteckten Ziele nicht, da bereits in ihrer Anfangsphase Anforderungen an die Software nicht gründlich genug analysiert und dokumentiert wurden. Oft wird auch vernachlässigt, dass Softwareentwicklung genauso viel mit Kommunikation, wie mit eigentlicher Entwicklungsarbeit zu tun hat. An diesem Punkt setzt dieser Klassiker der Softwareentwicklungsliteratur an, in dem überzeugend präsentiert wird, warum die Erhebung, Zusammenstellung und das Managen von Software Requirements essentiell für erfolgreiche Projekte ist und mit welchen erprobten Mitteln diese Aufgaben am besten zu meistern sind. Karl Wiegers zeigt damit, wie Requirements-Analysten, Projektleiter, aber auch alle Programmierer und Designer, die Anforderungen der Kunden umsetzen müssen, Produktivität, Termintreue, Kundenzufriedenheit und Wartungs- und Supportkosten mit dem im Buch beschriebenen Praktiken drastisch verbessern können. - Realistische Erwartungen für Funktionalität und Qualität setzen - Geschäftsregeln in die Anwendungsentwicklung integrieren - Anwendungsfälle zur Definition von Benutzeranforderungen verwenden - Unausgesprochene und wechselnde Requirements identifizieren und managen - Revisionen einschränken und damit Kosten sparen - Besser Software produzieren

Quantifying Software

Author: Capers Jones
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781351176354
Release Date: 2017-10-24
Genre: Computers

Software is one of the most important products in human history and is widely used by all industries and all countries. It is also one of the most expensive and labor-intensive products in human history. Software also has very poor quality that has caused many major disasters and wasted many millions of dollars. Software is also the target of frequent and increasingly serious cyber-attacks. Among the reasons for these software problems is a chronic lack of reliable quantified data. This reference provides quantified data from many countries and many industries based on about 26,000 projects developed using a variety of methodologies and team experience levels. The data has been gathered between 1970 and 2017, so interesting historical trends are available. Since current average software productivity and quality results are suboptimal, this book focuses on "best in class" results and shows not only quantified quality and productivity data from best-in-class organizations, but also the technology stacks used to achieve best-in-class results. The overall goal of this book is to encourage the adoption of best-in-class software metrics and best-in-class technology stacks. It does so by providing current data on average software schedules, effort, costs, and quality for several industries and countries. Because productivity and quality vary by technology and size, the book presents quantitative results for applications between 100 function points and 100,000 function points. It shows quality results using defect potential and DRE metrics because the number one cost driver for software is finding and fixing bugs. The book presents data on cost of quality for software projects and discusses technical debt, but that metric is not standardized. Finally, the book includes some data on three years of software maintenance and enhancements as well as some data on total cost of ownership.

Wien wartet auf Dich!// - "Peopleware" in deutscher Übersetzung - Der Klassiker in der dritten Auflage mit sechs neuen Kapiteln - Viele Tipps, wie Produkte mehr Qualität erhalten und formale Vorgehensweisen aufgelockert werden - Hilfreiche Empfehlungen, wie man Teams pflegt, die gesund und produktiv sein sollen Nur wenige Computerbücher haben eine so tiefgreifende Wirkung auf das Software-Management wie „Peopleware“: Denn in diesem langjährigen Bestseller wird ganz klar dargestellt, dass die wesentlichen Probleme in der Software-Entwicklung nicht technischer, sondern menschlicher Natur sind – und das sind nur selten triviale Probleme! Aber wenn Sie sie lösen, maximieren Sie die Erfolgschancen Ihrer Projekte Für diese dritte Auflage haben die Autoren sechs neue Kapitel geschrieben und andere überarbeitet, um sie auf den Stand der heutigen Herausforderungen zu bringen. So behandelt das Buch zum Beispiel Management-Pathologien, die bislang nicht als Pathologien wahrgenommen wurden. Auch eine neue Kultur für Meetings wird angesprochen oder hybride Teams, die aus Mitarbeitern zusammengestellt werden, die aus altersmäßig scheinbar nicht kompatiblen Generationen stammen. Und die Autoren diskutieren Hilfsmittel, die sich in Projekten eher wie Anker statt wie Propeller anfühlen. Jeder, der Software-Teams oder Software-Organisationen managen muss, wird in diesem Buch unschätzbare Hinweise für die tägliche Arbeit finden.

They know FileMaker, they've used it for years, but they need a quick reference, immediately accessible while not interrupting their work on screen. There is no other book like this on the market. All FileMaker books include information on calculation formulas, scripting, etc., but none have expressly focused on giving readers one simple thing: a quick reference to be used in conjunction with their programming efforts.
