Abstract

To clarify the relation between controllable attributes of a software development and its productivity, this paper experimentally analyzed a software project repository (SEC repository), consisting of 253 enterprise software development projects in Japanese companies, established by Software Engineering Center (SEC), Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan. In the experiment, as controllable attributes, we focused on the outsourcing ratio of a software project, defined as an effort outsourced to subcontract companies divided by a whole development effort, and on the effort allocation balance among development phases. Our major findings include both larger outsourcing ratio and smaller upstream process effort leads to worse productivity.
