Many organisations struggle to measure the effort required to develop and maintain real-world software, particularly for system-level and embedded projects. This talk will demonstrate the usefulness of a new algorithmic approach based on analysis of data from a range of established FOSS projects including the Linux kernel, systemd and various components from the GENIVI project. The new method will be compared with established methods and tools such as COCOMO2 and David A. Wheeler's SLOCCount.
