Practical Software Project Estimation via Functional Sizing
An evening talk about measurement of software projects to derive reliable cost, effort and duration scenarios for planned projects.
This seminar discusses the measurement of software projects and in particular how to size business requirements using Function Point Analysis. It then describes how benchmarks are used to derive reliable cost, effort and duration scenarios for planned projects and how proposal tabled by vendors and in-house teams can be reviewed in terms of viability.
