Description
Description: This article provides software cost and productivity benchmarks that you can use to determine how your organization ranks compared with industry averages, and whether your software estimates are reasonable; General Dynamics Decision Systems shares cost/benefit performance results that indicate productivity and quality improve with increased software process maturity; this article discusses how to best use statistical process control as a powerful management tool when applied to the earned value management indicators and cost and schedule performance indexes; are you making the transition to CMMI from another model? Read how applying technology adoption concepts to the move can smooth the process considerably; here's how one avionics project reported four-fold productivity and 10-fold quality improvements by adopting unambiguous programming languages that focus on preventing bugs vs. detecting them later on; this article proposes enhancing the Capability Maturity Model Integration to include guidance for modeling and simulation.

Summary
Summary: CrossTalk, The Journal of Defense Software Engineering, is an approved U.S. Department of Defense journal. CrossTalk's mission is to encourage the engineering development of software in order to improve the reliability, sustainability, and responsiveness of our warfighting capability and to inform and educate readers on up-to-date policy decisions and new software engineering technologies.

Table of Contents
Table of Contents: Software by Numbers: Let the Numbers Do the Talking; by Donald J. Reifer. This article provides software cost and productivity benchmarks that you can use to determine how your organization ranks compared with industry averages, and whether your software estimates are reasonable -- How CMM Impacts Quality, Productivity, Rework, and the Bottom Line; by Michael Diaz and Jeff King. General Dynamics Decision Systems shares cost/benefit performance results that indicate productivity and quality improve with increased software process maturity -- Statistical Process Control of Project Performance; by Walt Lipke. This article discusses how to best use statistical process control as a powerful management tool when applied to the earned value management indicators and cost and schedule performance indexes -- Best Practices: Are You Prepared for CMMI?; by Suzanne Garcia. Are you making the transition to CMMI from another model? Read how applying technology adoption concepts to the move can smooth the process considerably -- Software Engineering Technology: Correctness by Construction: Better Can Also be Cheaper; by Peter Amey. Here's how one avionics project reported four-fold productivity and 10-fold quality improvements by adopting unambiguous programming languages that focus on preventing bugs vs. detecting them later on -- Open Forum: Modeling and Simulation CMMI: A Conceptual View; by Frank Richey. This article proposes enhancing the Capability Maturity Model Integration to include guidance for modeling and simulation.
