Function Points: Are They Really the Right Unit of Measure for Software Sizing?
Function points (FPs) are the most popular unit of measure for measuring the size of software. But because FPs were developed in the 1970s, are they not now

Examples include use case points (UCPs), which are based in unified modeling language (UML) methodology; object points (OPs), which simplify the counting and does not make use of any environmental factors to influence the software size; and software size units (SSUs), which use neither the complexity nor environmental factors to influence software size.

Learning Management Suite (LMS)

These are tools for managing, creating, scheduling training or learning in your organization. The terminology varies from vendor to vendor. Learning management systems (LMS) typically help to manage both classroom and on-line learning. They do not normally include content creation or management tools but may in some cases. Some LMSs may manage just classroom or just e-learning rather than both. Some LMSs may also include content authoring and managment and virtual classrooms. Learning content management systems (LCMS) emphasize the management of content for courses/training/learning. In most cases, they include content authoring tools. In some cases, they may also include some of the features of LMSs. Content authoring tools are often provided as part of an LCMS. They may also be stand-alone products. Virtual classrooms (web conferencing tools) normally are separate third party offerings but may be included as part of a suite of tools. Suites of tools include features of at least two or more of the above categories. While some companies offer just LMS or LCMS systems others offer suites of products, which provide all or most of the features of the other tools. Suites combine several capabilities of learning management--usually two or more of the following: learning management, classroom training management, e-learning management, custom content creation, learning content management, learning object repositories, or virtual classrooms.

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part V - Applying the Methodology


Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture-centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems - not an accidental by-product of the software acquisition and integration process.

However, we need to start some place and the EDM/PDM domain provides unique requirements not always found in general business systems. This example, shown in Figure 5-1, is derived from [Hofm97] and adapted to the manufacturing domain. In this example architecture the components are partitioned into functional layers: Workflow - is an application system that implements Read More

The PMO Conflict: So Much Promise, So Little Alignment


When a project management office (PMO) operates well, the impact can be extraordinary. All too often, though, the PMO doesn’t become a clear asset. In order to avoid the worst-case scenario, PMO team members often become internal advisors with marginal impact and no authority. What can be done to avoid this? And what are the keys to successful PMO implementations?

How Charismatic Is Your ERP System?


While conducting “research” for another project, I stumbled across Max Weber’s notion of classification of authority, which was news to me, as is most serious Western thought.

Legal Weber defined charismatic authority as being derived primarily from, well, charisma, or personal magnetism.
