Analyzing the cost and benefit of pair programming

F. Padberg, M.M. Muller
Proceedings. 5th International Workshop on Enterprise Networking and Computing in Healthcare Industry (IEEE Cat. No.03EX717)  
Such results clearly show that we must consider metrics from different categories in combination to assess the cost-benefit relation of Pair Programming.  ...  At the expense of increased personnel cost, Pair Programming aims at increasing both the team productivity and the code quality as compared to conventional development.  ...  In such a case, software engineering research must provide the metrics and models which are necessary to analyze both the benefit and cost of applying the technique.  ...

Cost-benefit analysis of an emergency alarm and response system: a case study of a long-term care program

H S Ruchlin, J N Morris
1981 Health Services Research  
This article demonstrates the utility of applying cost-benefit analysis to evaluations of long-term care programs.  ...  Cost-benefit analyses are routinely included in evaluations of acute care programs. In the case of long-term care, it is frequently alleged that cost-benefit analysis cannot be fruitfully applied.  ...  We analyzed benefit profiles on two levels. First, we pooled all experimentals and controls into one large data base and analyzed study-wide benefit profiles.  ...

However it is important to note that the design of ASSIST-ME 36 allows inclusion of any data sources for cost/benefit analysis, which can be easily programmed 37 into the application architecture.  ...  Thus, quantification of the likely changes in terms of associated benefits and 17 costs is crucial for policy makers and planners in order to determine the net benefit of these 18 projects.  ...

A preliminary study on the impact of a pair design phase on pair programming and solo programming

Matthias M. Müller
2006 Information and Software Technology  
We split the pair programming process into a pair design and a pair implementation session and started to analyze the impact of the pair design session on pair implementation and solo implementation.  ...  The drawback of pair programming is the nearly doubled personnel cost.  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to thank Henning Brechmacher for supervising the students during the experiment and Guido Malpohl for proofreading a previous version of this article.  ...

The economics of supported employment: What new data tell us

Robert Evert Cimera
2012 Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation  
Further, supported employment appears to be more cost-effective than sheltered workshops over the entire "employment cycle" and returns a net benefit to taxpayers.  ...  This paper reviews the literature on the economics of supported employment. By comparing results from research conducted prior to, and after, 2000, several important findings were identified.  ...  The purpose of this investigation is to examine and synthesize the recent research (i.e., since 2000) on the monetary cost and benefits of supported employment programs in the United States.  ...
