Description

IFPUG, the International Function Point Users Group, has recognized two software sizing metrics that are complementary to each other. While Function Points have been used for years to measure the business functionality of a software application, SNAP is a recently introduced measure of non-functional software size. SNAP (Software Non-Functional Assessment Process) has quickly received worldwide acceptance into the sizing community, and is globally used in collaboration with Function Points to aid in project estimation, quality analysis and performance productivity.

When both measures are used in tandem, you can gain a deeper perception of project delivery and application maintenance. Function points size the data flow through a software application, while SNAP measures the non-functional requirements, and when used in conjunction they provide a host of benefits to the project.

Our two day course in Holistic Software Size Estimation using FPA and SNAP is the best path to get started with the IFPUG method, and covers all the concepts related to estimation and measurement processes in software projects. Using real-world case studies, learn to implement best practices in IFPUG FPA and SNAP, and gain valuable insights into the components that make up your software applications.

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

What you will learn?
  • Definitions, rules and guidelines of FPA and SNAP
  • Details of the various estimation methodologies, tools and implementation techniques
  • How to identify logical functional components of software, and assess function point values
  • How to better plan and estimate projects
  • Understand process performance baselines, and how to identify areas of process improvement
  • How to increase performance efficiency and functional stability
  • How to quantify the impacts of non-functional strategies
  • How to provide specific inputs when detailing non-functional issues
You will also get:
  • Two day instructor-led classroom training
  • Progress checks, counting exercises and live case studies
  • Condensed slide pack of both IFPUG FPA and SNAP
  • Two real time case studies for IFPUG FPA, and one case study for SNAP
  • Downloadable e-book
  • SNAP Assessment Practices Manual (soft copy)
  • One month warranty period during which the participants can take our support
  • 16 PDUs
Who Can Attend?

Professionals who are involved in counting and using Function Points must learn how to assess the non-functional SNAP entities as well, as both go hand-in-hand.

An indicative participant mix would include:

  • Project Managers
  • Delivery Managers
  • Business Analysts
  • Software Metrics Specialists
  • Quality Consultants

Our Students See All

Attended a 2 day CSM course during the weekend at Novotel. The course materials provided were straight forward and simple to understand. The professor also provided great examples in the real-world and applying it to the SCRUM framework. Team exercise & clicker questions made the course very interesting and helps to prepare for the online test. The online platform was easy to navigate and well designed.

Attended workshop in April 2018

The training was conducted by Lizzy Morris who happens to be one of Pioneers in the field of Agile training. The best part of training was very well planned structured layout which ensured that all topics are covered in the rigid span of 2 days training.

Attended workshop in May 2018

The training session was really beneficial and Trainer was well experienced and one of the top few in the Educator journey. Only thing is the location of the conference could be little better.

Attended workshop in April 2018

The training given by Lizzy Morris was interesting as well as amazing. She was taking a lot of practical scenarios during the training and her command on the topic was praise worthy.
