IFPUG launches the SNAP Case Study Award Program

February 23, 2017 Committees General


SNAP is four years old!

Many organizations are implementing SNAP (the Software Non-functional Assessment Process that measures the non-functional requirements) and incorporating it into their Metrics Program. We would like to share their practical experience with the software measurements community: this experience can be translated into white papers, examples and case studies in SNAP manual, or questions in the SNAP certification program.

IFPUG is launching a SNAP Case Study Award Program.  The purpose of this program is to collect real life scenarios that demonstrate how SNAP is applied to non-functional requirements. It includes (but not limited to) interpreting customer requirements, categorizing into SNAP sub-categories, counting scenarios, the use of SNAP to improve estimations, etc.

The best case study of the month will win an award of a broad publicity and a $100.00 worth gift. Other case studies will be placed into a pool and will be candidates for the winner in the next months. The winning candidate will be eligible to select from the following awards:

  • $100.00 Credit towards one year IFPUG Membership.
  • $100.00 Voucher to use at the IFPUG online store.
  • $100.00 Check (US currency).

The contest will run from March 2017 through December 2017.
