An analysis of trends in productivity and cost drivers over years

  title={An analysis of trends in productivity and cost drivers over years},
  author={Vu Nguyen and LiGuo Huang and Barry W. Boehm},
Background: Software engineering practices have evolved considerably over the last four decades, changing the way software systems are developed and delivered. Such evolvement may result in improvements in software productivity and changes in factors that affect productivity. Aims: This paper reports our empirical analysis on how changes in software engineering practices are reflected in COCOMO cost drivers and how software productivity has evolved over the years. Method: The analysis is… CONTINUE READING
