Function Point Analysis (FPA)
Is a technique used to measure the size of a software. Widely used in various companies and public agencies, the technique created by IBM and evolved by an international user group – International Function Point Users Group (IFPUG) – serves to scale the amount of functionality that exists in the development or maintenance of a system.
In the current context of increasing use of FPA for estimation and pricing purposes, the use of a Function Point Analysis Management and Measurement Platform is essential.
This approach will allow:
› Make possible to trace, audit and defend a function point count counting;
› Ensure automatic creation and maintenance of a historical counting base;
› Increase confidence in metric analyst work;
› Streamline Counting Process;
› Provide greater security to the body responsible for estimate the cost and resources required for software development, improvement, and maintenance.
