Workshop on

Software Estimation using Function Point Analysis

At Bangalore, Hurry! Register Today.

Software size is an important input for estimating the effort‚ schedule‚ and cost of software. However‚ factors such as ever-expanding user requirements and the variety of software tools available today make it difficult to estimate the software size.


Function point analysis (FPA) is a structured technique for software size estimation and helps overcome these difficulties. The FPA technique involves viewing the functionality of software from the users’ perspective and then estimating the size based on the required functionality.


The objective of the workshop is to provide training on Function Points Analysis estimation technique for estimation size, effort and thereby derive project schedule.


At the end of training:

After the completion of the course, the participants would be able to:
• Understand the principles of good estimation
• Understand the steps involved in a Function Point estimation
• Apply the techniques for Function Point estimation

Pre Requisite:
• Basic Concepts and Techniques of Estimation
