Software estimation using function points

The Function Point Analysis (FPA) technique involves viewing the functionality of software from the users’ perspective to measure the size and once size (or complexity) is measured, derive effort using productivity and schedule based on many factors with the use of a case study.

Objectives / Benefits

  • To help estimators in coming up with estimations using function points
  • To enable participants to understand the principles of good estimation, measuring function points
