CHARISMATEK Software Metrics is proud to be a sponsor of
At this year's ISMA4
conference, CHARISMATEK Software Metrics' chief analyst and product manager,
Ms Robyn Lawrie, will be presenting on the subject of "Implementing
In this presentation, Robyn will discuss CHARISMATEK’s
experiences over the last fifteen years in implementing Function Point Analysis based estimation for software delivery and support for a range of large
corporate and government organisations. The presentation will address both the
initial task of getting a Function Point Analysis based estimation program ‘up and running’
within an organisation and, then, what is required to ensure the continuation
and success of such a program.
The presentation will provide solutions to a variety of
issues and problems typically faced by estimators, including:
How to plan a project to implement a Function Point
Analysis based estimation program.
How to incorporate Function Point Analysis based estimation into standard
software life cycles, processes and QA activities.
How to decompose a single project function point size to
address multiple technology choices, product characteristics and delivery
strategies when estimating.
Why the function point 'size of interest' may vary
between project phases and how to deal with this when estimating.
What is the difference between function point size
'precision' and 'accuracy' and how to correctly incorporate and
report both these concepts within an estimate.
Robyn's presentation is sure to be both informative and
useful for all analysts, project managers and others involved in the use of
Function Point Analysis for software project estimation.
As part of the ISMA4 vendor showcase
CHARISMATEK we will be demonstrating the many new and enhanced features in the Function
Point WORKBENCH software. Make sure you drop by and have a chat.
