Estimating Software Size using Function Point Analysis
Estimate Project Efforts, Schedule and Team size using COCOMO-II
About the Workshop
Various surveys have repeatedly discovered that most of the software projects (over 60%) are marred by cost and time overrun. One of the major reasons is inability of project team to estimate the right size of the software and not accounting various factors like earlier experience on similar project, team’s capability, risks identification and mitigation, reusability, documentation required, attrition etc. in estimation of efforts and not using any scientific method for estimating time and the team size.
This become even challenging when client ask the product in reduced time and team inability to understand exponential impact of compressed schedule on efforts. This leads to inappropriate estimation of the efforts & time required to complete the project which in turn converts into cost/time overrun, extended hour working, introducing defects, rework and client dissatisfaction.
This course provides a platform to learn Function Points counting techniques COCOMO-II model to apply them through case studies to estimate software size, efforts required for development, calculate elapse time and identify average team size by considering all those factors that can impact efforts & time required for meeting project objectives
The course is based on latest Function Point guidelines & FP Manual 4.3 and COCOMO-II Model
After this course participants will be able to…
