1 day workshop
A functional model represents software as the users of

functions provided by the software and the data used to support the
functions. All the components of the model are defined in user terminology
so that it can be used for communication between the business world and IT.
The components of the model are defined using the rules
used by function point analysis. This means that the model can be easily
extended, formally or informally, to provide functional sizing.
At the completion of the course, participants will be
build a functional model from a software requirements
build a functional model of an existing system
use functional modelling to establish software
communicate software functionality using a functional
