More than 50% of software projects fail because of time and cost overrun. Many such failures are traced back to poor estimation. Ad-hoc estimation can not only ruin the successful completion of a project, but also your career as a programmer or a project manager.
Software project estimation is a process of expectation setting that quantifies resource requirements, which are required to accomplish certain goals based upon certain clearly stated assumptions. It comprises of Size, Effort and Schedule estimations.
Function Point Analysis (FPA) proposed by IFPUG (International Function Point Users Group) is an industry leading software estimation technique which is also an ISO standard. Learning and following FPA by IFPUG could save you countless late night stays at office, and also could put you on a fast- track to promotion.
This two days hands-on workshop on FPA would demystify the notions about estimation and equip a software professional to handle the subject of estimation with improved accuracy to tide over the above said negative points.
