  • Assess software deliverables and data complexity
  • Test design principles and operational characteristics using software prototyping
  • Handle configuration change, research, quality control, and documentation costs 

"Capers Jones' work offers a unique contribution to the understanding of the economics of software production. It provides deep insights into why our advances in computing are not matched with corresponding improvements in the software that drives it. This book is absolutely required reading for an understanding of the limitations of our technological advances." --Paul A. Strassmann, former CIO of Xerox, the Department of Defense, and NASA
