A useful coin is a well-spent coin.

We provide the ability to accurately size software as a management and control technique for successful project delivery. This leads to function point estimation methods. Quantitative functional software sizing uses IFPUG Function Point Analysis to develop an objective and quantifiable measure of business and functional requirements, non-functional technical requirements, and software source code.

The View From Your Customer – The Business
Frequently the term end user or user is used without specifying what is meant. In this case, the user is a sophisticated user. Someone that would understand the system from a functional perspective — more than likely someone that would provide requirements or does acceptance testing.
A Technology-Agnostic Sizing Method to Compare IT Products
Since Function Points measures systems from a functional perspective they are independent of technology. Regardless of language, development method, or hardware platform used, the number of function points for a system will remain constant. The only variable is the amount of effort needed to deliver a given set of function points; therefore, Function Point Analysis can be used to determine whether a tool, an environment, a language is more productive compared with others within an organization or among organizations. This is a critical point and one of the greatest values of Function Point Analysis.
A Proven Method to Assess & Optimize Your Productivity
Function Point Analysis can provide a mechanism to track and monitor scope creep. Function Point Counts at the end of requirements, analysis, design, code, testing and implementation can be compared. The function point count at the end of requirements and/or designs can be compared to function points actually delivered. If the project has grown, there has been scope creep. The amount of growth is an indication of how well requirements were gathered by and/or communicated to the project team. If the amount of growth of projects declines over time it is a natural assumption that communication with the user has improved.
Is your Organization Function-Point Driven ?
Our experience at assessing Function Point in various contexts enables us to implement a Function-Point assessment in your existing processes in order to optimize the productivity of your IT Services, delivering value-driven products to the business. The end-result is a drastic improvement of your Application Development and Maintenance/Support (ADM) productivity
How Does it Work ?

We work with your project managers to gather requirements and design artifacts available in your environment, such as Agile epics and user stories, use cases, business and functional requirements, RICEFW objects, technical design components, etc..

After doing some initial sizing based on the above artifacts, we  interview subject matter experts who are familiar with the required product functionality to help fill in the gaps and ensure we aren’t missing anything

After validating with subject matter experts, we now have a robust size input that can be used in parametric cost and schedule estimation tools. This can be used for a variety of purposes to include: feasibility assessments, alternatives analyses, formal project estimates, assessment of the impact of requirements additions, forecast to complete and benchmarking.
