Function Point Analysis Training

Learn the art of sizing the software and estimating efforts for development

About the program

High degree of uncertainty and availability of limited information in the beginning, make the estimation of projects in any field risky, challenging and equally exciting . It is even more challenging in software field. If estimations are not properly done, the complete project becomes struggle for project manager and its team.

This workshop provides a platform to understand concepts of Function Point Analysis and apply FPA techniques to estimate size and efforts required for development, enhancement and maintenance of the software. Participants will learn Function Points Counting techniques through exercises and case studies. After the workshop they will be able to use this tool to estimate various types of projects employing legacy to latest technology like Mainframe, Database, web development, mobile etc.
