Abstract

Two aspects of system productivity exist: productivity of the system development process and the system's impact on the productivity of the organization as a whole. The theory and practice in measuring both aspects of systems productivity is discussed. Over the past decades generations of development tools have evolved. The goal of these tools is to improve the productivity of system development. More recently, the role of development tools in improving organizational productivity is being addressed. Attributes and usage of current tools are discussed. A new generation of development tools, which are integrated, friendly, and intelligent, is discussed. Finally, a representative sample of the new generation tools is discussed along with related theory.
