CHARISMATEK Software Metrics Online Training Course

Software Project Estimation Using the Function Point WORKBENCH™

Course Type and Duration

Workshop - 1 half-day session


The Function Point Analysis technique is used to assess the size of a software project, expressed in function points. The assessed project size can then extended to estimates of project effort and cost through the use of appropriate project delivery rates, expressed using metrics such as “Function Points per Month” or “Dollars per Function Point”.

CHARISMATEK Software Metrics’ Function Point WORKBENCH™ is the world’s leading software tool supporting the IFPUG Function Point Analysis for sizing, analysis and reporting of software projects and applications.

The WORKBENCH incorporates a range of mechanisms for extending a project’s function point size into estimates of effort and cost. In addition, a project’s function point size details assessed using the WORKBENCH can be imported into the world’s leading project estimation tools.

This half day workshop provides a complete demonstration of the WORKBENCH’s project estimation functions and facilities.


At the completion of the course, participants will be able to utilise the Function Point WORKBENCH™ to:
