Estimation

Today, I attended a seminar about Function Point Analysis.


To me, this seems to be a very magical way of estimating a piece of functionality. It is so different from that way I used to come up with my estimates that, though I haven't tried it yet, I can't help but think of reasons why it won't work.


Such type of thinking is not beneficial if you are trying to learn something. So, I'll give FPA some chance. In the end, I might end up not liking it after all, but at least I would know why.

then you can join the International Function Point Users Group

and conduct seminars of your own ;-)

I'm very interested in what the industry data looks like since FPA uses that as some magic sauce to compute complexity. I've never paid for the membership fee so I was left to whatever search turned up. Hope you post about it.
