Abstract: The identified major problems in software production centers are those related to nonstandard management system. There are much repeated works, rapid changes of requirements, lack of training, latency of software (S/W) delivery, and large number of defects detected after the delivery of software. This article aims to identify the performance criterion of software projects that leads to increasing project productivity, and software quality. The results shows that improving the performance of software productivity can be achieved by applying the Dynamic Forms, Queries, and Reports techniques through the criteria Application type, Functional size measurement approach, Project size, Language type, Team size, Development platform. While improving the performance of Software quality value (SQV) is achieved by applying other criteria such as the use of the six forms of testing collectively (Unit, New function, and Performance, Regression, System, and Acceptance tests) and full documentation.
Keywords: Software benchmark, software quality, software production centers, software productivity.
