Back to the top A System for Measuring Function Points from Specifications [PDF] Fausto Gramantier, Evelina Lamma, Paola Mello and Fabrizio Riguzzi This paper proposes a knowledge based approach for the automated measurement of the Function Point metric starting from the specifications of a software system expressed in the form of an Entity Relationship (ER) diagram plus a Data Flow Diagram (DFD).
To perform their validation accurately, they collected data on the development of eight medium-sized information management systems based on identical requirements.An in-depth experimental validation, conducted on large scale projects demonstrates the usefulness of the metrics defined.Chapter 6 Metrics Development for Object - Oriented Software [PDF] James M.They are based on different sets of assumptions (about the design process) related to a well defined experimental goal they help reach: identify error-prone software parts.In particular, ratio-scale metrics for cohesion and coupling are defined, that show interesting properties.
The authors have specialized the general rules for counting Function Points for the case of a specification in the form of an ER-DFD model. Use Case: What About Function Points and Use Cases?
