Background: Several Functional Size Measurement methods have been introduced after the success of Function Point Analysis, thus originating the problem of converting Function Point measures into other units. To this end, several methods -- ranging from statistical analysis to "manual" conversion -- have been used. However, none of the proposed conversion methods guarantees the necessary accuracy. Objectives: The objective of the work reported here is to define a seamless and cheap procedure… CONTINUE READING
