In this talk Colin Hammond raises the importance of using the best foundation metric on software endeavours. He explains why size is the most important aspect to measure and why the ISO standard, COSMIC Function Points is the best metric to use. Using this as the base, other metrics for cost, productivity, schedule adherence, quality and resources can all be reliably derived, resulting in more reliable estimates and better project control.
