ISMA 17 Workshop #2

Workshop 1: Software Sizing using IFPUG Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP)

Date and time: March 6 (2 PM to 6 PM IST)

Presenter: Joshua Fernando and Srinivasa Rao Kanneganti


In the modern era, when software industry is moving to Digital, E-commerce, Analytics, Cloud, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence etc., it has become a major challenge to quantify or size non-functional user requirements (NFRs). These requirements are primarily related to usability, security, performance efficiency, reliability, portability, maintainability, compatibility & functional stability related aspects of the application. The share of the non-functional requirements is growing rapidly, from 15% in traditional projects to ~50% in recent Digital Transformation projects. The audience will understand what is IFPUG SNAP (in detail), how to size NFRs using SNAP, how to integrate Function Points & SNAP and get the overall picture of the complete application.

Target Audience: Business/IT Analysts, Project Managers, Bid Managers, PMO staff members, Quality Managers and anyone involved in Project estimates, with a primary attention to NFR (Non-Functional Requirements).
