The purpose of this thesis is to study how organizations are measuring productivity improvements from Computer-Aided Software Engineering (CASE). Hypotheses are established to conduct a survey in organizations where CASE is being used. A literature review is conducted to understand this technology, and to study what should be considered to ensure its successful implementation in an organization. An in-depth study, using questionnaires and interviews, was conducted in three multinational organizations based in the Washington, D.C. area. The results show that in these organizations, the introduction of CASE formed part of the information systems (IS) strategic plan, and that as a result, the systems development life cycle has changed. However, a definition for productivity did not exist. The results indicate that it is worth investing in CASE as a means to facilitate and standardize the way systems are developed.
