Dauer: 1 hour in English

Especially in complex projects, the challenges of inaccurate Estimation are in the Test and Rework effort.


Underestimating the effort in this area is mainly due to lack of a more mature approach to estimating the required test effort and the anticipated defects and thereby requiring rework effort. If all software projects use a Quantitative Approach for estimating Test Effort, Rework Effort, and anticipated Defects, the likelihood of successfully deliver the software project will increase. Using a quantitative approach will bring value and improvement to the estimated effort's accuracy, and the quality of the software product delivered.


This presentation will share the insight into Test and Rework Estimation and Estimation of anticipated Defects, using Function Point Analysis (FPA) and Software Non-functional Assessment Process (SNAP) – two industry sizing standards under the International Function Points Users Group (IFPUG).
