Function Point Analysis

The ability to accurately size software is a critical aspect of managing and controlling successful project delivery. Quantitative functional software sizing is the use of multiple functional decomposition techniques (Function Point Analysis, FP Lite, Quick and Early Function Points (QEFP), COSMIC, and SNAP) to develop an objective and quantifiable measure of business and functional requirements, non-functional technical requirements, and software source code.

Accurate sizing allows you to effectively manage requirements’ definition and scope. In fact, employing an accurate sizing mechanism has a direct impact on the efficiency of how you utilize your resources and manage your budgets, offering retrospective information about past performance and providing insight into future performance.

Our consultants provide the customized sizing expertise you need to move to quantitative decision making.
