Abstract

The past few years have seen the introduction of repository-based computer aided software engineering (CASE) tools which may finally enable us to develop software which is reliable and affordable. With the new tools come new challenges for management: Repository-based CASE changes software development to such an extent that traditional approaches to estimation, performance, and productivity assessment may no longer suffice — if they ever did. Fortunately, the same tools enable us to carry out better, more cost-effective and more timely measurement and control than was previously possible.
