SNAP Fundamentals

SNAP Fundamentals - Course Listings
Course Details:

SNAP (the Software Non-Functional Assessment Process) provides a quantifiable measure for the non-functional size of software. As such, attendees will learn to size non-functional characteristics by means of documented definitions, guidance, and practices in order to improve software estimation, build better benchmarks, and better communicate non-functional issues to stakeholders.

In the course, you will:

  • Understand the principles behind SNAP counting techniques
  • Apply the SNAP process to both applications and projects
  • Understand how SNAP points and function points can be used in conjunction for maximum benefit
  • Improve communications with users through non-functional metrics

This class is ideal for the software practitioner or project manager who needs or wants to learn IFPUG SNAP counting techniques. The instructor-based training class provides a general understanding of SNAP counting techniques, while also preparing attendees to start performing counts. Unlike similar classes, our class provides intensive instruction and hands-on practical application facilitated by one of our highly qualified and experienced trainers.

If you wish to have an on-site training class or a class in Spanish for your organization, please contact Tony Manno at 610-829-9122. Online training is available here. More information on the class is available here.

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
