New - Continuous Iterative Development (Agile) Measurement Framework

The draft materials on this web site provide recommendations for measurement of continuous iterative developments (CID). The white paper includes an overview, and a series of diagrams and an ontology, to describe the development approaches and terminology used. The paper includes a measurement framework detailing common information needs and measures that are effective for evaluating CID approaches. This is documented in the “Information Category-Measurable Concept-Measures” (ICM) Table. The information needs address the enterprise, product/program, and team perspectives, as described in the ICM table. The framework also identifies an initial set of measures that have been identified as being practical measures to address these information needs. For the highest priority measures, sample measurement specifications have been developed that detail the identified measures. These materials are all draft. This is an initial release that is currently being updated by the working group. An updated release is scheduled for 20 December 2019.

Practical Software and Systems Measurement (PSM) was developed to meet today's software and system technical and management challenges. It is an information-driven measurement process that addresses the unique technical and business goals of an organization. The guidance in PSM represents the best practices used by measurement professionals within the software and system acquisition and engineering communities. PSM:

  • Is sponsored by the Department of Defense and the US Army
  • Provides Project Managers with objective information needed to successfully meet cost, schedule, and technical objectives
  • Is based on best measurement practices of DoD, government and industry programs
  • Is a flexible process
  • Defines an information-driven analysis approach
  • Supports current software and system acquisition and measurement policy
  • Provides a basis for enterprise level management
  • Is compatible with the ISO/IEC 15939 standard, Software Measurement Process
