Software Engineering Economics

[Stanford University]

- Overview

Software engineering economics is about making software engineering-related decisions in a business context. The success of any software engineering project depends in part on effective business management. 

Software engineering economics provides a method to systematically examine the properties of software and software processes and relate them to economic measures. These can be weighted and analyzed when making decisions within a software engineering project and its organization.

The essence of software engineering economics is to align software technology decisions with an organization's business goals. It explores key aspects of software engineering economics, including life cycle economics; risk and uncertainty; economic analysis methods and practical considerations, linking concepts and theories to contemporary software economic realities
