Metrecal
Metrecal was a brand of low-calorie, powdered diet foods (to be mixed with water as a beverage) "containing the essential nutrients of protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamins and minerals" introduced in the early 1960s by the Mead Johnson company, with the first variety going on the market on October 6, 1959, the same day as another Mead Johnson product, Enfamil. Though the initial Metrecal products were criticized for their taste, which newer varieties of flavor tried to improve upon, it attained a niche in the popular culture of the time. Created and marketed initially by C. Joseph Genster of Mead Johnson & Company, it was eventually replaced in the market by competitors such as SlimFast and lost popularity because it was linked to deaths. History Founding Mead Johnson had a long history of creating nutritional supplements for infants (Enfamil) and invalids, and Metrecal was seen as a logical progression into weight loss for the general public. Genster was the group director for nutri ...

Performance Indicator
A performance indicator or key performance indicator (KPI) is a type of performance measurementPerformance measurement is the process of collecting, analyzing and/or reporting information regarding the performance A performance is an act of staging or presenting a play, concert, or other form of entertainment. It is also defined as the actio .... KPIs evaluate the success of an organization or of a particular activity (such as projects, programs, products and other initiatives) in which it engages. Often success is simply the repeated, periodic achievement of some levels of operational goal (e.g. zero defects, 10/10 customer satisfaction), and sometimes success is defined in terms of making progress toward strategic goals. Accordingly, choosing the right KPIs relies upon a good understanding of what is important to the organization. What is deemed important often depends on the department measuring the performance – e.g. the KPIs useful to finance will differ from the KPIs as ...

Typographic Measurement
In movable type, metal typesetting, a font is a particular #Characteristics, size, weight and style of a typeface. Each font is a matched set of type, with a piece (a "Sort (typesetting), sort") for each glyph, and a typeface consisting of a range of fonts that shared an overall design. In modern usage, with the advent of computer fonts, the term 'font' has come to be used as a synonym for 'typeface' although a typical typeface (or 'font family') consists of a number of fonts. For instance, the typeface "Bauer Bodoni" (sample shown here) includes fonts "Roman (typeface), Roman" (also 'Regular'), "Emphasis (typography), Bold" and ''"Italic type, Italic"''; each of these exists in a variety of sizes. The term "font" is correctly applied to any one of these alone but may be seen used loosely to refer to the whole typeface. When used in computers, each style is in a separate digital "font file". In both traditional typesetting and modern usage, the word "font" refers to the delive ...

Reuse Metrics
In software engineering, many reuse metrics and Scientific modelling, models are metrics used to measure code reuse and reusability. A metric is a Quantitative property, quantitative indicator of an attribute of a thing. A model specifies relationships among metrics. Reuse models and metrics can be categorized into six types: # reuse cost-benefits models # maturity assessment # amount of reuse # failure modes # reusability # reuse library metrics Reuse cost-benefits models include economic cost-benefit analysis as well as quality and productivity payoff. Maturity assessment models categorize reuse programs by how advanced they are in implementing systematic reuse. Amount of reuse metrics are used to assess and monitor a reuse improvement effort by tracking percentages of reuse for life cycle objects. Failure modes analysis is used to identify and order the impediments to reuse in a given organization. Reusability metrics indicate the likelihood that an artifact is reusable. Re ...

Metric (mathematics)
In mathematics, a metric or distance function is a function (mathematics), function that gives a distance between each pair of point elements of a Set (mathematics), set. A set with a metric is called a metric space. A metric induces a topology on a set, but not all topologies can be generated by a metric. A topological space whose topology can be described by a metric is called metrizable. One important source of metrics in differential geometry are metric tensors, bilinear forms that may be defined from the tangent vectors of a differentiable manifold onto a scalar. A metric tensor allows distances along curves to be determined through integration, and thus determines a metric. Definition A metric on a set is a function (mathematics), function (called ''distance function'' or simply ''distance'') :d : X \times X \to [0,\infty), where [0,\infty) is the set of non-negative real numbers and for all x, y, z \in X, the following three axioms are satisfied: : A metric (as defin ...

Software Metric
A software metric is a standard of measure of a degree to which a software system or process possesses some property. Even if a metric is not a measurement (metrics are functions, while measurements are the numbers obtained by the application of metrics), often the two terms are used as synonyms. Since quantitative measurements are essential in all sciences, there is a continuous effort by computer science Computer science deals with the theoretical foundations of information, algorithms and the architectures of its computation as well as practical techniques for their application. Computer science is the study of computation, automation, a ... practitioners and theoreticians to bring similar approaches to software development. The goal is obtaining objective, reproducible and quantifiable measurements, which may have numerous valuable applications in schedule and budget planning, cost estimation, quality assurance, testing, software debugging, software performance optimiz ...
