CAST Automated Function Points CAST Automated Function Points Presentation Transcript

  • CAST has developed a sophisticated algo- rithm for automatically counting function points. The result of 5 years of intensive R&D, CAST Automated Function Point Counts closely replicate the IFPUG manual standard. CAST Automated Function Point counts are objective, repeatable, and cost effective. In addition to measuring the number of func- tion points within an application, the CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) also provides precise measures of the changes in the number and complexity of all application components. With this additional information, IT organizations can use CAST Automated Function Points to accurately measure soft- ware productivity. The Advantage of CAST Automated Function Points Comprehensive - Function point counts are based on the entire application no matter how large. No need to extrapolate the count from parts of an application. Objective and Repeatable - CAST’s automated computable algorithm produces repeatable, consistent results time and again. No human intervention is required. Cost Effective - After the initial set up time, the cost of subsequent counts is zero. No Documentation, No Problem – CAST Automated Function Points are based on a detailed analysis of the architectural structure of the application. Counting does not rely on documentation or application subject matter experts. Apples to Apples Comparison - The objectivity, consistency, and widespread ap- plicability make CAST Automated Function Points ideal for benchmarking and comparing applications. Essential Insight for IT Management - IT executives get accurate, objective ap- plication productivity data to inform funding, resourcing, and prioritization decisions. What does CAST Application Intelligence Platform do? • Calculates productivity baseline CAST AIP establishes a baseline of the number of function points per staff month against which improvement in team pro- ductivity can be measured. • Tracks productivity over time Calculate the number of function points per staff month for every major release of a mission-critical application and compare it with the established baseline. The differ- ence translates into an increase or de- crease in productivity. • Generates measures of quality and complexity All application components and use these additional measures to get a more accurate value for productivity. www.castsoftware.com Europe 3 rue Marcel Allégot 92190 Meudon - France Phone: +33 1 46 90 21 00 North America 373 Park Avenue South New York, NY 10016 Phone:+1 212-871-8330 Questions?

  • Easily default definitions of Function Point transaction definitions using the CAST AIP Transaction Configuration Center. • Identifies process inefficiencies Analyze differences in productivity to high- light points of process inefficiency. Hav- ing quality and complexity information in addition to size makes it easier to find and quickly fix the root causes of inefficiency. • Recommends corrective action to improve productivity. • Measures effectiveness of process improvements By measure productivity once again to quantify the effectiveness of process im- provement. CAST AIP Automate Function Point • Generates a map of productivity hotspots in your applications and provides actionable advice to improve productivity. • Reports on team productivity to inform portfolio prioritization, resource allocation, and vendor management. • Enables the ability to measure and com- municate improvements in operational efficiency to business partners. • Measures productivity based on historical performance to improve estimation and resource allocation. • Gives you the ability to measure and im- prove the effectiveness of your operational processes and controls. www.castsoftware.com Europe 3 rue Marcel Allégot 92190 Meudon - France Phone: +33 1 46 90 21 00 North America 373 Park Avenue South New York, NY 10016 Phone:+1 212-871-8330 Questions?
