IT Efficiency Run

The basis for an increase in efficiency is the estimation of the optimisation potential of products, projects and processes with the help of productivity key figures from the own organisation or Benchmarking. 

The results concerning efficiency show the immediate saving potentials and simultaneously which areas are set up well. 


We use products in order to determine the productivity. Sufficient information about scope of functions, costs and time have to be available to obtain adequate predications of run.

This approach has a lot in common with the method of function point analysis of bc. Depending on the number of selected developments the effort has to be multiplied for the review. To identify the actual effort (PD) and cost rates the support of cost and performance accounting and of IT controlling are required.

  • Evaluation of productivity - Run
  • Specification of productivity indicators (FP/PM, EUR/FP)
  • Comparison with reference data
  • Comparison of productivity indicators with reference data
  • Determination of a strengths and weakness profile
  • Identify optimisations by means of reference data

The realisation is as following:

  • Specification of analysis targets
  • Determine the FP method (IFPUG vs. COSMIC)
  • Form/content of data collection
  • Obtain a decision concerning the baseline (see option)
  • Project schedule
Data analysis – Option A: Requirements are documented
  • IT Analysis (requirements analysis, software design, change requests)
  • Function Point Analysis
  • Conduct data evaluation
Data analysis – Option B: Requirements are not documented
  • Collection of functions in workshops
  • Function Point Analysis
  • Conduct data evaluation
QS Workshop
  • Clarification of open questions
  • Discussion of remaining issues with the customer
  • Corrections with regard to the QS workshop will be amended
PresentationThe handover of results
a) in written form (presentation)
