Description

Software systems are becoming increasingly difficult to measure and understand. As they increase in complexity, there needs to be an efficient method that can be used to understand and communicate software size needs. The Function Point Index helps to evaluate and measure a development project, which helps in the optimization, planning, and effective management of software production.
Function Points quantify software functions in meaningful terms, and can be readily applied across diverse development environments. Accurate evaluations using FPA can help IT teams in moving toward best practices in the management of software products. By optimizing processes, timely deliveries of higher quality can be ensured.
Our course in Software Size Estimation and Measurement using IFPUG FPA teaches you how to measure the size and complexity of a software product using the Function Point Index.

On successful completion of the course, you will receive a Course Completion Certificate from KnowledgeHut with Credits (1 credit per hour of training).

Everything was well organized. I would like to refer to some of their courses to my peers as well. The customer support was very interactive. As a small suggestion to the trainer, it will be better if we have discussions in the end like Q&A sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Function Point Analysis (FPA) is a technique to break systems into smaller components, so they can be better understood and analyzed. This FPA methodology provides an objective, comparative measure that assists in the evaluation, planning, management and control of software production. Our training provides a complete and in-depth understanding of the Function Point Analysis technique based on the IFPUG Release 4.3 standard. You will learn the basics of how function points measure software by quantifying their user functionality based on the logical design, and how this method provides a structured technique for problem solving.
