The Siemens Measurement System for Software-based Systems (SMS) was set up in 2004 (see Keynote of F. Paulisch at the Metrikon
2006) and until now information of more than 440 projects has been collected. The active contribution of almost all software
developing organizations within Siemens to the company-wide Measurement System provides a good data base to compare and analyze
performance data such as “Budget Deviation” and the various success-critical influencing factors such as review practices,
“Team Size” or “Unplanned Team Changes” between various organizations. This way, areas of interest can be objectively identified,
where organizations could benefit from Best Practice Sharing.
