Bug in use case metrics reports
« on: October 29, 2007, 12:54:00 am »
Hello,

I found two bugs in the use case metrics reports.

When you generate the report you get some tables.
One of them is in the section
Environmental Complexity Factors.

The last column header int the report is called TCF!

This is wrong! it must be EF!

The second bug is the nomenclature sparx uses. It is wrong.

The use case metrics are based on Gustav Karners Use case Point method.

He introduced technical complexity factors, describing the complexity of the SW-project (TCF).

He also introduce environmental factors  (EF) and NOT environmental COMPLEXITY factors.

The environmental factors describe the poductivity of the team and has nothing to do with complexity.

Therefore the name must be EF and the column header must be EF.

Regards
Michael

Google "Kirsten Ribu"'s work.  IMO, EA is more aligned with her work than Karner's.

Hello,

what do you mean with

hope that helps.

Sparx says it is using Karners method.
But it is not using Karners nomenclature.

This is a bug, and I hope they fix it.
