iTips provide guidance on topics important to the FPA community. An iTip is intended to be a short document (only a few pages), explaining the application of IFPUG FPA method in a common situation. An iTip is an example of a single application, not an exhaustive examination of a particular subject. iTips are not rules, but interpretation of the rules, and provide guidance using a realistic example to explain a particular topic.
IFPUG offers iTips at no charge to the international function point community to stimulate the further use and consistent application of the IFPUG FPA Method.
