Abstract

This paper reports on a multi-year field study conducted at the FirstBoston Corporation to investigate the performance of its object andrepository-based integrated computer aided software engineering (I-CASE)tool called High Productivity Systems (HPS). We present productivity andsoftware reuse results for:* three closely monitored small-scale I-CASE pilot projects; and,* twenty large-scale investment banking projects built during the firsttwo years of the I-CASE tool's deployment.Our results offer perspective on the potential for order of magnitudegains in software development productivity when reusable softwaredevelopment approaches are applied. They also suggest the need for newmeasurement and management approaches to foster improved softwaredevelopment performance in the I-CASE world.
