Sizing for estimating, measurement and benchmarking

by Christine Green

This presentation talks about how sizing can be a normalizing factor for both estimating, measurement and benchmarking.  It introduces the need to utilize a size measure for both functional as well as non-functional size. This utilizes the IFPUG method Function Point Analysis (FPA) as well as Software non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP).

The presentation takes the view of estimating to measurement for projects – to benchmarking for organizations utilizing industry data as the competitive comparison.

The presentation touches on issues with requirements.  It examines how to utilize FPA and SNAP to re-cover this.  It examines Accuracy levels of size assessment for estimating, high-level view of other data then size that should be collected – but focus is on sizing as a measure – not a full measurement program.
