In order to calculate size and to estimate effort in applications, the standard method most usually used is function points, which has been used with good results in the development of industrial software for some time. However, some aspects should be improved, namely: the time at which the estimation of effort is performed and the margin of error in the effort estimation. Consequently, another size metric which could be used to obtain more accurate estimations should be found. This article… CONTINUE READING
