Productivity Measurement and LOC counting
As I understand, Productivity in Software is typically size / efforts and size could be Lines of Code or Function Points etc.
For lines of code whatever I have observed so far, I find that comments are excluded from LOC counting. What is the rationale behind not considering comments for LOC count?
Developers do spend time in writing comments. Specific comment style might even be a customers requirement.
Re: Productivity Measurement and LOC counting
No shop I've worked in has used LoC as a relevant measure of anything in probably 15 years. If you're two choices are FP or LoC, FP is better (slightly), although more difficult for managers without development experience to grasp (again, based on my experience).
Have you tried searching here for measures in Productivity? Also, there are some decent articles floating around that talk about this and related topics. Stickyminds might be a good place to start looking for those.
