IFPUG endorses three types of standard methodology for software sizing.
IFPUG has one mission—to be the unquestioned recognized leader in promoting and encouraging effective application software development and maintenance activities. We do this by endorsing three proven methodologies for precise software sizing:
- Function Point Analysis (FPA)
- Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP)
- Simple Function Points (SFP)
IFPUG is also the governing body for the Certified Function Point Specialist (CFPS), the Certified Function Point Practitioner (CFPP), the Certified SNAP Specialist (CSS) and Certified SNAP Practitioner (CSP) certifications.
