Continuously Improving the Software Development Process

How the FPA, SNAP and SFP Excel at Sizing Software

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.

What is Function Point Analysis (FPA)?

How big is this system? Is it more extensive than that other system—if so, by how much? Also, how much more will it cost me to build a new system? Am I paying too much to maintain the other one? How much value it brings to business?

Many questions—all which only Function Point Analysis (FPA) can answer.

FPA is a systematic apples-to-apples technique used to measure software product. ISO certified, the methodology is based on the distinct functions each requirement is providing to the business.

What is the Software Non-Functional Assessment Process (SNAP)?

Using IFPUG standards, the Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP) provides organizations with a unique competitive advantage over those using other software sizing methods that do not account for non-functional software size.

Saving time and money, SNAP ensures you meticulously plan, evaluate and manage your software development initiatives.

What Are Simple Function Points? (SFP)

Accurately determine a project function point count simply by identifying a project’s data and transactional functions with the Simple Function Points (SFP) standard.

Instead of assigning function points to each requirement, simplify the time-consuming counting process by removing the complex determination step. SFP complement the FPA by providing you with another tool for determining the size of a project early in the development cycle.
