Resumo

Estudamos neste trabalho as possibilidades de utilização da Análise de Encapsulamento de Dados (DEA) na avaliação da produtividade no desenvolvimento de sistemas. Apontamos um conjunto de variáveis de entrada, que medem os volumes de recursos utilizados, e de saída, que medem o volume da produção resultante. Estudamos relações entre essas variáveis de modo a reduzi-las em número e comparamos os resultados da aplicação de diferentes modelos de DEA. Os resultados obtidos indicam que esta metodologia pode ser aplicada eficientemente para classificar equipes operando em ambientes comparáveis.

Palavras-chave

Análise de Encapsulamento de Dados, medição de eficiência, avaliação cruzada

Abstract

We study here the possibility of application of data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to the evaluation of productivity in computational systems development. We choose input and output variables for this process and study the relations between them that may allow to simplify the model. We compare the results of application of different DEA models. The results obtained show that cross evaluation can be successfully applied to rank system development teams working in similar environments.

Keywords
