Knowledge Café Webinar Series: A Journey Inside the White Paper “Boundaries and Partitions”: How to Escape the Trap of Subjectivity

Knowledge Café Webinar Series Webinars

We are bringing you the first webinar after the successful ISMA19 Virtual Conference. This webinar is the opportunity to learn more about the concept “Boundaries and Partitions” which is extensively used in IFPUG’s functional and non-functional sizing.

Abstract of the Webinar:
SNAP introduces a new concept into the IFPUG software metrics methodology – that of the “partition.” In this webinar we will overview the concept of the partition, referencing one of IFPUG’s newest publications, the white paper “Boundaries and Partitions.
What can be the criteria for making the placement of boundaries and partitions more objective? Attendees will be guided step by step within the paper illustrating the pros and cons of different choices to answer this question. It will be a journey between functional and non-functional to discover the solution proposed by IFPUG for each measurement scenario: the joint use of FP (or SFP) and SNAP to fully enjoy the benefits of using IFPUG.
