Applied Function Point Analysis Using SCOPE


Book Course More Information

 

OBJECTIVES

The three day training course has been specifically designed for people who need to gain an in-depth understanding of both Function Point Analysis (FPA) and how to apply it using the FPA repository software - SCOPE Project Sizing SoftwareTM. The course teaches how to use FPA throughout the software development life cycle from development through to enhancement and support.

OUTLINE

Course topics

  • the origins of FPA, who uses it, and common areas of application.
  • step-by-step practical methodology for FPA - from planning the count through to its ongoing maintenance.
  • a detailed explanation of the underlying rules and guidelines of FPA, including examples of how to count in new technology environments as well as the more traditional ones.
  • standards and procedures which facilitate consistent and accurate use of FPA.
  • approximating and validating FPA Counts.
  • which facilitate consistent and accurate use of FPA.
  • step-by-step practical methodology for FPA - from planning the count through to its ongoing maintenance.
  • a detailed explanation of the underlying rules and guidelines of FPA, including examples of how to count in new technology environments as well as the more traditional ones.
  • standards and procedures which facilitate consistent and accurate use of FPA.
  • counting with different levels of accuracy for different purposes
  • how to estimate functional size without actually measuring
