09:00 - 13:00
W1: IFPUG SNAP (Software Non-functional Assessment Process)

Presenter: Steve Kitching

When Counting Worlds collide…

In many projects we can encounter situations where both Function Points and SNAP points are appropriate :-

How do handle both together ?

What do we do when both could apply to the same functionality?

How do we measure Productivity?

How do we estimate with both together?

Can we use with Agile?

14:00 - 18:00
W2: CISQ: leading the way forward into effort and quality metrics from automated code analysis


  • Philippe Emanuel Douziech (CISQ Head of European Science Directorate / CAST Principal Research Scientist)

  • Michele Slocovich (CISQ Outreach Director Italy)


  • Ex-post measurement of software sizing and development activity sizing, including non-functional (technical) elements in the source code through Automated Enhancement Points (AEP) calculation
  • Ex-post measurement of software quality (security, reliability, performance efficiency, maintainability) and estimation of related remediation effort through Automated Technical Debt
  • Usage of sizing and quality metrics to support the development of quality-adjusted productivity indicators


The workshop will be following agenda:

  • Presentation and roadmap of the Consortium for IT Software Quality, with a focus on its “Automated from Source Code” positioning
  • Presentation, status and adoption of Automated Function Points / Automated Enhancement Points, with a focus on multi-sourcing challenges (ex-ante vs ex-post, automated vs. manual, creating a need for sizing “data scientists” to turn all the data into answers for the business)
  • Presentation of recent Automated Technical Debt Measure and underlying Automated Source Code Security/Reliability/Performance Efficiency/Maintainability Measure, with a focus on adapting measurements to take into account organizational needs thanks to Contextual Technical Debt Measure
Considerations for sizing and quality metrics in contracts, eventually coupled in formulating effective productivity approach.
