Most organizations are familiar with functional software sizing, using it to effectively manage and control project delivery. DCG offers this via IFPUG function points and COSMIC function points.
However, not many organizations realize that there are also techniques for sizing non-functional software. Luckily, a Trusted Advisor member submitted the question, "How Do I Size My Non-Functional Software?" to the Trusted Advisor question backlog, and it was voted as the topic for this month's report.
Check out the report to learn why you would want to measure the non-functional components of software, the measures that should be used for sizing, as well as how to implement those measures.
