Software Engineering - Software Measurement Process (Adopted ISO/IEC 15939:2002, first edition, 2002-07-15)
This International Standard identifies the activities and tasks that are necessary to successfully identify, define, select, apply, and improve software measurement within an overall project or organisational measurement structure.
It also provides definitions for measurement terms commonly used within the software industry. This International Standard does not catalogue software measures, nor does it provide a recommended set of measures to apply on software projects. It does identify a process that supports defining a suitable set of measures that address specific information needs.
