White Paper for Workshop on New Visions for Software Design and Productivity

Title: Value Based Software Engineering

Barry Boehm and Dan Port, University of Southern California

Kevin Sullivan, University of Virginia



The primary thesis of Value-Based Software Engineering (VBSE) is that the integration of a software system’s stakeholder value propositions into the system’s definition, design, development, deployment, and evolution is critical to the system’s success. This white paper:

· Analyzes the sources of software project failure in the Standish Report, and shows that many of the failed projects were caught in the vise of valueinsensitive software engineering.

· Discusses promising research ideas for improving our capability to perform VBSE.

· Presents a roadmap for making progress toward VBSE and its resulting benefits.

The white paper concludes with a summary of the relations between VBSE and other software research and applications areas. It is unavoidably involved with software and information system product and process technology, and their interaction with human values. It is strongly empirical, but includes new concepts in need of stronger theory. It uses risk considerations to balance software discipline and flexibility, and to answer other key “how much is enough?” questions. And it helps illuminate information technology policy decisions by identifying the quantitative and qualitative sources of cost and value associated with candidate decisions.
