    Re: Bench marking

    Hi GeeVee,
    Benchmarking is the process of determining who sets the standard and what that standard is. It is done to motivate people to improve toward that goal.Benchmarking is the process of comparing an organization's operations and internal processes against those of other organizations within or outside.

    Regards,
    Sandeep

    Re: Bench marking

    Sandeep, that is almost perfect, but benchmarks can also be something as simple as a statement in a specification.

    For instance, let's say that my specification indicates that my software will run at a maximum of 60 frames per second. If I set the software to the maximum framerate and it does not run at 60 frames per second, but 40 frames per second, then we have a problem. This would be an example of a performance benchmark.

    You could set benchmarks for just about anything.

    Re: Bench marking

    A benchmark can also be a set of conditions already experienced (and accepted) in the past. This would then be the minimum requirement for the future. As such, it would not really be "... done to motivate people to improve toward that goal."
