On May 3rd during the 12th IFPUG International Software Measurement & Analysis Conference there will be a Workshop, OMG/CISQ Workshop on Automated Function Points.
Presenters will be:
- Bill Curtis, Executive Director, Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ)
- Philippe-Emmanuel Douziech, Principal Research Scientist, CAST
The Workshop will discuss the Automated Function Points (AFP) standard developed by CISQ and approved by OMG in 2013. Dr. Curtis and Mr. Douziech will discuss how this standard can complement IFPUG’s manual counting guidelines in order to obtain a wider and deeper productivity measurement process at an affordable cost. They will discuss the measurement process for implementing AFP and how that compares to manual counts and the cost of counting. They will show how automation can increase the use of functional measurement within software development and maintenance processes, including Agile Methods. Problems in using both automated and manually-counted Function Points to analyze productivity during maintenance and enhancement activities will be discussed along with potential solutions. They will also present the recent OMG standards for automating the measurement of Reliability, Security, Performance Efficiency, and Maintainability from the source code, and how these can be used with AFP to more accurately assess application productivity.
