In a world that is becoming more and more agile, metrics are an indispensible base for managing the essentials of your software project: quality, cost and time. Nesma provides you with valuable information about software metrics and measurements, and the way metrics support your road to successful and cost-effective software projects.
Your starting point for successful software projects
Sizing and more
Nesma has its origin in measuring the size of software. Today, size and other metrics form the base for many activities that play a role in successful and cost-effective software projects.
SW Cost Estimating
Estimating cost and managing budgets is very important in software projects. Together with ICEAA and with support of international organizations, Nesma is involved in establishing a Software Cost Estimating Body of Knowledge (sCEBoK).
Nesma offers a combination of both free and paid publications that are helpful for you as a metrics professional. Take a look at these publications and raise your level of knowledge!
