Most metric sets deal with a variation of these attributes and are chosen to help project managers gain insight into their product (size, software quality, rework), process (rework, software quality) and project (effort, schedule).


But below is a broader classification :-


Project Management Metrics


milestone metrics

·         number of milestones

·         number of proved requirements per milestone

·         controlling level metrics


risk metrics

·         probability of resources availability

·         probability of the requirements validity

·         risk indicators (long schedules, inadequate cost estimating, excessive paperwork, error-prone modules, canceled projects, excessive schedule pressure, low quality, cost overruns, creeping user requirements, excessive time to market, unused or unusable software, unanticipated acceptance criteria, hidden errors)

·         application risk metrics


workflow metrics

·         walkthrough metrics

·         traceability metrics

·         variance metrics


controlling metrics

·         size of control elements

·         structure of control elements

·         documentation level

·         tool application level


management database metrics

·         data quality metrics

·         management data complexity

·         data handling level (performance metrics)

·         visualization level

·         safety and security metrics


Quality Management Metrics


customer satisfaction metrics

·         characteristics size metrics

·         characteristics structure metrics

·         empirical evaluation metrics

·         data presentation metrics


review metrics

·         number of reviews in the process

·         review level metrics

·         review dependence metrics

·         review structure metrics

·         review resources metrics


productivity metrics

·         actual vs. planned metrics

·         performance metrics

·         productivity vs. quality metrics


efficiency metrics

·         time behavior metrics

·         resources behavior metrics


quality assurance metrics

·         quality evaluation metrics

·         error prevention metrics

·         measurement level

·         data analysis metrics

·         actual vs. Planned metrics


Configuration Management Metrics


change control metrics

·         size of change

·         dependencies of changes

·         change interval metrics

·         revisions metrics


version control metrics

·         number of versions

·         number of versions per customer

·         version differences metrics

·         releases metrics (version architecture)

·         data handling level
