COSMIC Function Points: Theory and Advanced Practices by Reiner Dumke

By Reiner Dumke

Designed to comply to the ISO/IEC general 14143, the typical software program size foreign Consortium (COSMIC) functionality element procedure has turn into the main estimation approach in keeping with foreign criteria for development software-intensive structures. COSMIC functionality issues: idea and complex Practices provides a state-of-the-art examine present and rising practices within the overseas software program size neighborhood. The editors have assembled a global panel of specialists who aspect the stairs for measuring the sensible dimension of software program and constructing undertaking estimates with enhanced accuracy. They clarify easy methods to review and examine platforms to enhance software program reuse and improvement. pertaining to the fundamental features of the following iteration of sensible measurement size tools, the ebook delineates top estimation and dimension practices in addition to the improvement of benchmarks for caliber development, together with Six Sigma. this whole source covers software program size and estimation tools and practices for embedded platforms, enterprise purposes, communications software program, and regulate structures. every one bankruptcy offers the sensible realizing required to create, enforce, standardize, distribute, and adapt sensible measurement size and undertaking estimation to nearly any software program context. compliment for:… an exceptional assessment … presents a powerful wisdom historical past for either practitioners and researchers. … With its wide history, it truly is valuable for essentially enforcing and effectively adapting different useful sizing equipment … . The COSMIC functionality aspect strategies offered during this publication can assist you to enforce, grasp, and enhance your estimation process.—Christof Ebert, coping with Director, Vector Consulting prone

Thus, it must be measured later in the software life cycle than Mark II function points, feature points, and IFPUG function points, which can be measured at the same time with the same level of detail and with the same precision as function points.
