 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 and Use Case Points. They get a clear, conceptual understanding of complex concepts related to FP and Use Case Points. With this background, they will be in a position to estimate the project better.
