Software Estimation Using FPA

Workshop Overview

Estimation plays a crucial role in project planning. It determines the difference between success and failure of a project to a large extent. Poor estimation leading to project disaster is now a bygone conclusion. Estimating size and effort is a Herculean task. This course is designed to address Function Point Counting technique with hands-on exercises for effective application in real world.

Workshop Objectives

The workshop provides participants with an enhanced understanding of:

  • Function Point (FP) Counting
  • Guidelines, hints, and examples to understand FP Counting
  • Case study on use of FP in software estimation
  • Use and limitation of FP technique
  • Who Should Attend?

    The course is useful for
  • Project leaders
  • Project Managers and
  • Those involved in planning and managing projects
  • Workshop Benefits

    At the end of the workshop, participants will develop an understanding about FP Counting Techniques . They get a clear, conceptual understanding of complex concepts related to FP. With this background, they will be in a position to estimate the project better..
