Many businesses are looking for the right project measures as they relate to project planning, scheduling, and performance. Mark Blackburn gives guidance on defining, collecting, and analyzing measures derived from a model-based testing method. These measures and their use are described in terms of an information model adapted from the ISO/IEC 15939, Software Engineering-Software Measurement Process. The model-based method associated with these measures involves modeling requirements and mapping modeled requirement variables, referred to as object mappings, to interfaces of the target test system.
- Fundamental units of measure derived from model-based artifacts
- Graphical representations of measures and how to use them to estimate project duration
- Real-time project data used to predict the completion of an ongoing project
