Brooks is software process dynamics simulator for Brooks' Law.
As of now, there is no installer.
Clone and modify one of the existing Python modules in the
schedules directory to describe the simulation you want
to run, the run the simulation with:
$ cd brooks $ python3 -m brooks schedules/schedule_a.py --output=data/schedule_a.tsv -- software_development_rate
This runs the simulation with
schedule_a and captures the
software_development_rate attribute of the model
state into a tab-separated value (TSV) file, which can then be inspected in a text editor or spreadsheet.
The results from one or more simulation runs with different schedules can be charted with:
$ python3 -m plotter software_development_rate data/schedule_a.tsv data/schedule_b.tsv
This gives a chart of the
software_development_rate attribute for the run results from
