movieIcon Reporting Counts

SCOPE provides over 40 different Function Point count reports. This tutorial shows how to selectively filter the reports so you only display the information and level of detail required.

movieIconUsing the Count for Earned Value Reporting

SCOPE allows the User to identify the status of any Process or data group (using Numerical Attributes) . In this case the user can assign to each process or data group how complete it is with respect to the  project life cycle.  This enables quantitative Earned Value type reporting based on the extent the functionality has been built tested and implemented.

movieIconCompare Two SCOPE Reports

SCOPE utilises a compare utility which automatically compares the contents of two reports line by line and highlights any different (changed) text , identifies when lines have been inserted or deleted. This enables you to quickly determine the difference between two SCOPE function poin counts.

movieIcon Using the Count for Project Estimation

SCOPE enables the user to assign different productivity rates (hours of effort to build a funciton point) to the processes and data groups within the project using Numerical Attribures.  This tutorial demonstrates how this can then be used to provide quick early estimates of project effort and cost.

movieIcon Setting up Numerical Attributes

Numerical Attributes enable the selective quantitative reporting of your function point counts.  For example you can assign a $cost for different types of devleopment to different areas of functionality.  SCOPE will then total the cost for each devleopment type and total the cost for the Change Request, or the Release.

movieIcon Set Up Numerical Attribute Templates for Reuse

Numerical Attributes enable the selective quantitative reporting of your function point counts.  For example you can assign a $cost for different types of devleopment to different areas of functionality.  SCOPE will then total the cost for each devleopment type and total the cost for the Change Request, or the Release.
