Measuring the Function Points for Migration Project: A Case Study

K. Mustafa, K. Gowthaman and R. A. Khan

Abstract

In this study, we extend the study of Function Point Analysis (FPA) for the measurement of source code based migration project using the migration tooling options. FPA is an objective and structured technique to measure software size by quantifying its functionality provided to the user, based on the requirements and logical design. It is noticed that the procedure for the above measurement is not fully described in FPA method. Hence, the same estimation concept has been applied to an in-house project on an experimental basis at a leading software development organization. The yielded results are compared with FPA for the re-engineering project.
