Many project managers plan their schedules based on the programmer
productivity on past projects. This productivity is often measured in
terms of a unit of size per unit of time. For example, an organization
may produce 300 lines of code per day or 1200 application points per
month. Is it appropriate to measure productivity in this way? Discuss
the measurement of productivity in terms of the following issues:
1. Different languages can produce different numbers of lines of code for implementation of the same design
2. Productivity in lines of code cannot be measured until implementation begins.
3. Programmers may structure code to meet productivity goals.
