Function Point Analysis FPA on A Team Planning Website Based on PHP and MYSQL

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

A function point analysis (FPA) has been carried out on a custom team planning website based on PHP and MYSQL. The FPA was done after the development was nished (retrospective) and a constructive cost model analysis (COCOMO) was carried out to asses source lines of code (SLOC). In the present study the function point analysis is based on entities of the relational database evaluated as internal logical les, and evaluation of PHP source code with dynamic SQL as either external input les or external inquiry les. The complexity for a custom team planning website was found to be 510 total adjusted function points (TAFP) (UAF=580 FP, TDI=23, VAF=0, 88, TAFP=510FP). The function point estimate was classi ed as an organic project in a COCOMO analysis, and it was concluded that the complexity corresponds to 27742 LOC (or 27, 4 KDSI). The estimate of 66-82 person-months project would correspond to a 4 crew team in 16-21 months. The estimate was compared to the actual source code count of 22300 LOC.
