Evaluation in software engineering: ROI, but more than ROI

Farbey, B. and Finkelstein, A. ORCID: 0000-0003-2167-9844 (2001). Evaluation in software engineering: ROI, but more than ROI. Paper presented at the 3rd International Workshop on Economics-Driven Software Engineering Research (EDSER-3 2001), 12-19 May 2001, Toronto, Canada.

Abstract

This paper presents a short survey and analysis of a variety of evaluation methods, which are potentially useful for strategic software design. The methods described address a broad range of concepts of value. The paper complements previous economics driven software engineering research work on standard accounting techniques. A summary account of the underlying principles of each method is given, the methods are classified according to these principles and a way of choosing an appropriate method described.
