currently our company is using the kilobytes metric to measure the size of code, now we are feeling that we are missing the advantages of using the basic KLOC, can any one suggets the proper way of introducing theKLOC into our software through a long time plan rather than a short one .i.e. we are having long duration to introduce KLOC , we want to do it slowly, any suggetsions are welcomed.
gangaputra, I don't understand your question. As martiniq said, you'll find easily a tool to count LOC.
Then it's only a matter of changing your metrics to this new unity. It should be easy if you kept the history of the past project (and you have enough date) and can compare both calculation on different projects.
the first i will tell you the metric methods in software,many company use kloc or fp or use case and the other,you can select one of them or combine it for your orgainization
the kloc is often used as appraise the workload,assign the workpackage to someone by the end of the metric
1.give some uniform rule about how to measure
2.give a rule about code writting
3.find a tool for statistic
4.analyze the man's capability and give a index such as 0.8/1.0/1.2
5.create the math model for a forecast
