ProjectCodeMeter Is a professional software tool for project managers to measure and estimate the Time, Cost, Complexity, Quality and Maintainability of software projects as well as Development Team Productivity by analyzing their source code. Using a modern software sizing algorithm called Weighted Micro Function Points (WMFP) a successor to solid ancestor scientific methods as COCOMO, COSYSMO, Maintainability Index, Cyclomatic Complexity, and Halstead Complexity, It produces more accurate results than traditional software sizing tools, while being faster and simpler to configure.
Outsourced work assessment
Remote employee monitoring
Software size comparison by development time (Effort)
Budget Planning for software projects
Producing a Price Quote for source code
Predicting Development Schedule and Budget
Measuring past and ongoing Development Productivity
Evaluating the attractiveness of an Outsourcing offer (cost effectiveness)
Assessing source code Quality
Obtaining source code Metrics
The basic workflow of using ProjectCodeMeter is:
1) Select the Project Folder containing the source code (on the top left)
2) Choose the appropriate Settings (on the top right)
3) Click the Analyze button (on the top middle).
The results are shown at the bottom of the screen, both as Charts (bottom left) and as a Summary (bottom right).
Produces standard, objective, reproducible, and comparable Time and Cost Estimation results
Differential Comparison between two source code versions
Generates HTML, CSV and Microsoft Excel compatible reports (see Report Examples)
Configurable Report Template Engine for generating Custom Reports
Produces Effort and Cost estimates using WMFP, COCOMO 81, COCOMO II 2000, and Revic 9.2 , for comparison.
Counts several code metrics: Flow Complexity, Logical LOC, Comments, Constants, Strings, and more.
Optional command line operation for batch processing
Warns on code quality issues such as insufficient commenting or complex code structure.
Smart parser analyzes and understands the code, not just counts lines.
Truly differential source code comparison, free from the "negative SLOC" problem.
Automatic analysis algorithm leaves less for human discretion, thus simpler to configure and less error prone.
Fast can analyze more than 5MB of source code per minute.
Secure desktop application, your source never leaves your PC. Main application doesn't connect to the
internet (only the license manager application connects once at activation, with user approval).
Linear cost algorithm WMFP allows results to be added or subtracted measuring code version differences.
