You need to gather sufficient data to create a historical trend. If your organization is not well-disciplined or does not have a consistent style, these techniques will not work. 2 MEASURING FUNCTIONALITY One issue with using LOC, or any physical size measurement, as a measure of productivity is that it has little to do with the problem being solved and more to do with the software development technology itself. Customers want solutions and care little for the language or technology used to create them.

The more productive a language is, the fewer lines of code you should need to write, and hence, the more productive you should be. Early gearing factors1 were published by T. 1. 1 The gearing factor tables were created initially to show the relationship between LOC and function points. Function points are discussed in detail later in this book. 0 Java Powerbuilder Report Generator Spreadsheet Shell Scripts Visual Cþþ 91 71 64 15 53 16 80 6 107 34 This table says that, on average, a function that took 38 LOC to program in Access would take 91 LOC to program in Cobol (assuming both languages were appropriate).
