Estimating software size is a difficult task that requires a methodological approach. Many different methods that exist today use distinct abstractions to depict a software system. The gap between abstractions becomes even greater with object-oriented artifacts developed in unified modeling language (UML). In this paper, a formal foundation for the representation of functional size measurement (FSM) methods is presented. The generalized abstraction of the software system (GASS) is then used to… CONTINUE READING
