The best way to do this currently in
EPF is to define a supporting material for a "metric", and use
a consistent icon for metrics to distinguish from other supporting materials.
There are some better ways to do this
with Rational Method Composer. The best is to use the new feature
to create custom types.
You can define a new type called "metric",
give it a specific default icon, and define additional attributes and associations
We haven't yet done this yet in our
IBM library, but it's a reasonable change that we may make in the future.
For now, we use supporting materials and tag as "metrics".

Suggestion : Including Metrics and Measures Definition feature in EPF
I am a Process and Quality Assurance Analyst
at a Canada based IT services and product company.
I was exploring features with EPF and have
the below suggestion.
Any process definition, implementation and
improvement require definition and collection of process measures/metrics
and also task related measures and metrics. Without defining
appropriate measures and metrics a process definition is never complete.
For example productivity is one metric with
agile and measures such as effort and kloc are to be captured at each sprint
level.Also an artifact or a deliverable can be associated with metric such
as defect density, size etc (in software development or services terms)
A provision added to the EPF tool to
define measures, relate them to metrics and also relate them to artifacts/tasks/processes
This will also enable metrics/measures definition
re-use across the processes.
Just wanted to share this suggestion :-).Thanks
a ton for the great work you people are doing.
