A field study of over thirty projects using Object Technology has shown that the availability (or absence) of reusable frameworks has substantial productivity impacts. This can make it more difficult to reliably estimate the size and cost of such projects early in the software process. The newly proposed System Meter method tackles this problem by distinguishing functionality to be implemented from functionality supported by reusable components. It therefore yields more uniform and predictable productivity measures. Moreover, it can also be applied already after a preliminary analysis phase, in contrast to the more traditional Function Points approach.
