Introduction

   Project Estimation skills are increasingly being recognized as a company’s key competitive advantages. Whether that software is marketed commercially or used in support of internal business operations, effective management of software requires effective measurements. The Function Point metric has become the software measure of choice.

   Function Point analysis was created in the mid 70s as a technique for evaluating software size and system complexity. Today the Function Point metric is used by tens of hundreds of companies globally.

   FPA is used to accurately size systems in an effort to satisfy customer demands on time and within budget.

   The impact of new techniques and methods such as Graphical User Interface (GUI), Client -Server, Object Oriented Analysis (OOA) and Web based applications are currently being measured using Function Point analysis.The objective of the course is to provide inputs on Function Points and COCOMO, which are perhaps the most popular methods of sizing and estimating software systems today.

   Function point analysis developed by Allen Albrecht, when at IBM, is now universally accepted as an adequate and effective measure of functionally of a business, commercial, MIS software system and thus a vital first step that FPA is not geared for systems software, real-time applications or scientific systems.

   COCOMO is an Estimation model developed by Dr.Barry Boehm and used to estimate effort and calendar time. The 1997 version of this model will be covered in the course
