dc.description.abstractModernization of Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems has resulted in an ever-increasing dependence on software. Despite technological advances in the software field, software development remains costly and one of the highest risk factors on most weapon system programs. The use of software metrics is a methodology for mitigating this uncertainty so that software development progresses under informed decision making. Software metrics are essential tracking tools used by program managers to monitor and control risk areas. However, the choice of metrics for a program is critical to their usefulness. This research provides a guide to acquisition managers on selecting the most effective metrics to use in management of weapon system software. The study identifies key issues in the use of software metrics experienced by program managers. The study recommends a revised set of metrics and improvements to the use of metrics based on innovations and improvements in the software field as well as software estimation tools that facilitate the use of these software metrics.en_US
