Actually, a metric used at work is Effective SLOC (ESLOC), which is a
measurement
derived from Data Primitives including, but not limited to:
  DPh = SLOC created from scratch by hand
  DPrp = SLOC reused from other code created on the current project (where
the
         original code is already well-known)
  DPrx = SLOC reused from other code created external to the current project
  DPg = SLOC generated by some tool

So,
  ESLOC = c0 * DPh + c1 * DPrp + c2 * DPrx + c3 * DPg

Where cN is some constant.  ESLOC is then used as a basis for deriving other
CMM Level 4 measurements, such as defect density and productivity.

This is, of course, when the project is working at Reuse Level 0, where all
code that goes into an application is available in source code form.  At
higher
reuse levels we don't have any SLOC counts for the reused assets with which
to work.

Now this is getting silly. Surely we don't include generated code in the
SLOC
metric do we? Besides the rates of 10SLOC/Day are related to the number of
lines
written, tested and documented aren't they?
