It is actually the amount of code per feature point I am interested in, but
this seemed to be covered mostly on function point web sites. I am mainly
looking for an accurate productivity/clarity/quality comparison between
    I think the whole scheduling resources thing ultimately boils down to
wasting as little time as possible, and to my eye, that¹s a good thing (As
for how they peruse this goal...)
