ESP - Estimate Software Projects

Use ESP to quickly and easily calculate estimates of likely software project delivery rates, effort and cost.

The calculated project delivery rates and their descriptions can also be pasted into the Function Point WORKBENCH™ as Productivity Sinks for use with the Effort and Cost Estimation Reports.
