M. Deshamais, S. Oligny, D. St-Pierre, and C. Symons. 2003. COSMIC-FFP Measurement Manual. 3 Evaluation of Functional Size Measurement Methods This section evaluates the introduced functional size measurement methods according to: ◾◾ ◾◾ ◾◾ ◾◾ ◾◾ ◾◾ The suitability for different functional domains The degree of penetration and the experience background The tool support The testing and confirmation The standardization status The validation Subsequently, some recommendations for the decision-making process for choosing the right method will be given.

In the opinion of Meli (1997a), there are only two possible choices to deal with value adjustment factors. The first choice is to remove the value adjustment factor and use only the unadjusted count. The second one is to use the value adjustment factor in order to “qualify” the number of function points that are delivered for a particular application. This means that the same number of function points can be counted for a very usable and efficient component and for a less usable and efficient component.

Thus, a tool has been developed to assist the measurement consisting of two parts. FFPExtract analyzes the Siemens requirements specifications and extracts some artifacts that possibly could be measured. Then FFPCounter shows the specifications and suggests the artifacts in a dialogue. These artifacts then can be accepted by the user, counted, or refused. Another interesting approach is proposed by Diab et al. (1999, 2001). With the help of a formal definition of IFPUG and full function points, they enable an automation of counting.
