Contractual Progress Data

Mandatory contract progress data is returned every two weeks, and is used to track progress and identify if there is any risk of slippage. The progress data is used to perform variance analysis (a form of statistical control) against the baseline plan.

The progress data consists of:

■ Staffing: how many people are allocated to the project

■ Key milestones passed: for example, program design complete, all code complete

■ Program module status: if it is in design, code, unit test, integration, or validation

■ Program module size when the code is complete

■ Total code currently under configuration control

■ Software defects broken down into critical, severe, moderate, and cosmetic

■ Number of planned and completed integration and validation tests

This progress data is essential for the management of software development. Without this basic data, the development is out of control.
