    I work for a Leading banking company in US. While calcaluating DPMO of delivered software product often the capability calculation comes out to be misleading due to various interpretation of Opportunity to defect. Is it a line of code(LOC), or transactions or ?Capability level is either exaggarated or is under calculated due to variuos assumtions.What is the unit that is often recommended for a software product? This discussion has been moved to the IT/Software discussion forum. Please continue this discussion on that forum.

    Jiten,
    The software forum might be able to get you more responses….
    A couple of quick thoughts….
    A lot of current thinking in software development involves similar sizing issues, typically for level of effort estimates…  Research there might give you some insight…
    Check out Albrecht function point and McCabe Cyclomatic complexity in google…  Both are fairly easy to do and far more precise than LOC (and avoids all those issues with how do you count a line of code, ie commented?, frameworks?, etc)
    Hope this helps…
    Best Regards,
    Bob J
