|Abstract: ||This paper makes the business case for automating the collection of
software metrics for gauging development performance in integrated
computer aided software engineering (CASE) environments that are
characterized by an object-oriented development methodology and a
centralized repository. The automation of function point analysis is
discussed in the context of such an integrated CASE environment (ICE).
We also discuss new metrics that describe three different dimensions of
code reuse -- leverage, value and classification -- and examine the
p,ossibility of utilizing objects as means to estimate software
development labor and measure productivity. We argue that the automated
collection of these software metrics opens up new avenues for refining
the management of software development projects and controlling
