Benchmarking is defined as the process of measuring products, services, and processes against those of organizations known to be leaders in one or more aspects of their operations. Benchmarking provides necessary insights to help you understand how your organization compares with similar organizations, even if they are in a different business or have a different group of customers. Benchmarking can also help organizations identify areas, systems, or processes for improvements—either incremental continuous improvements or dramatic business process re-engineering improvements. Incremental Quality Improvement vs Benchmarking Breakthroughs. Benchmarking has been classified into two distinct categories: technical and competitive.

Proven techniques for software engineering successThis in-depth volume examines software engineering topics that are not covered elsewhere: the question of why software engineering has developed more than 2, programming languages; problems with traditional definitions of software quality; and problems with common metrics, "lines of code," and "cost per defect" that violate standard economic assumptions. The book notes that a majority of "new" projects are actually replacements for legacy applications, illustrating that data mining for lost requirements should be a standard practice. Difficult social engineering issues are also covered, such as how to minimize harm from layoffs and downsizing. Software Engineering Best Practices explains how to effectively plan, size, schedule, and manage software projects of all types, using solid engineering procedures. It details proven methods, from initial requirements through 20 years of maintenance.
Software process assessments are by now a prevalent tool for process improvement and contract risk assessment in the software industry. Given that scores are assigned to processes during an assessment, a process assessment can be considered a subjective measurement procedure. As with any subjective measurement procedure, the reliability of process assessments has important implications on the utility of assessment scores, and therefore the reliability of assessments can be taken as a criterion for evaluating an assessment's quality. The particular type of reliability of interest in this paper is interrater agreement. Thus far, empirical evaluations of the interrater agreement of assessments have used Cohen's Kappa coefficient. However, the applicability of these benchmarks to the software process assessment context is not obvious.
Benchmarking is the practice of comparing business processes and performance metrics to industry bests and best practices from other companies. Dimensions typically measured are quality, time and cost. Benchmarking is used to measure performance using a specific indicator cost per unit of measure, productivity per unit of measure, cycle time of x per unit of measure or defects per unit of measure resulting in a metric of performance that is then compared to others. Also referred to as "best practice benchmarking" or "process benchmarking", this process is used in management in which organizations evaluate various aspects of their processes in relation to best-practice companies' processes, usually within a peer group defined for the purposes of comparison. This then allows organizations to develop plans on how to make improvements or adapt specific best practices, usually with the aim of increasing some aspect of performance.
A successful peer review strategy for code review requires balance between strictly documented processes and a non-threatening, collaborative environment. Highly regimented peer reviews can stifle productivity, yet lackadaisical processes are often ineffective. Managers are responsible for finding a middle ground where peer review can be efficient and effective while fostering open communication and knowledge-share between teammates. A SmartBear study of a Cisco Systems programming team revealed that developers should review no more than to lines of code LOC at a time. The brain can only effectively process so much information at a time; beyond LOC, the ability to find defects diminishes. So, if 10 defects existed in the code, a properly conducted review would find between seven and nine of them. However, SmartBear research shows a significant drop in defect density at rates faster than LOC per hour.

Джабба не шелохнулся. - Мы ищем цифровой ключ, черт его дери. А не альфа-группы. Ключ к шифру-убийце - это число. - Но, сэр, тут висячие строки. Танкадо - мастер высокого класса, он никогда не оставил бы висячие строки, тем более в таком количестве.
Простите, сэр, вы, кажется, меня не… - Merde alors. Я отлично все понял! - Он уставил на Беккера костлявый указательный палец, и его голос загремел на всю палату. - Вы не первый. Они уже пытались сделать то же самое в Мулен Руж, в отеле Брауне пэлис и в Голфиньо в Лагосе. Но что попало на газетную полосу.
Уже больше полувека оно занималось тем, что собирало электронные разведданные по всему миру и защищало американскую секретную информацию.
Беги, Сьюзан. Открой дверцу. Спасайся. Она открыла глаза, словно надеясь увидеть его лицо, его лучистые зеленые глаза и задорную улыбку, и вновь перед ней всплыли буквы от А до Z. Шифр!.
Джабба отлично знал, что директор прав. Более трех тысяч узлов Независимой цифровой сети связывают весь мир с базой данных агентства. Каждый день военные оценивают моментальные спутниковые снимки всех передвижений по территории потенциальных противников.
