  • Explains ISO/IEC standards specific to software measurement and Functional Size Measurement
  • Details the five most popular and ISO/IEC accepted Functional Size Measurement standards including IFPUG, COSMIC, FiSMA, Mark II and NESMA
  • Presents various other software sizing methods including case points, object points and academic approaches
  • Complete with many real-world examples and hands-on checklists
  • Based on the authors’ many years of experience
  • Provides many pointers to Internet resources and international metrics organizations

The first step towards success in a software project is to ensure a professional setup. This includes a metrics-based formal estimation process to ensure a solid foundation for project planning. Accurate estimates require quantitative measurements, ideally tool based. In addition, software project managers must also monitor and update these estimates during the project’s lifecycle to control progress and assess possible risks.

Based on their many years of practical experience as software managers and consultants, Manfred Bundschuh and Carol Dekkers present a framework of value to anyone involved with software project management. They present all five ISO/IEC-acknowledged Functional Sizing Methods, with variants, experiences, counting rules and case studies, and they use numerous practical examples to show how to use functional size measurement to produce realistic estimates.

Written in a highly practical style, including checklists, templates, and hands-on advice, and backed up with many pointers to both national and international metrics and standards organizations, this book is the ideal companion for the busy software project manager or quality assurance manager.
