Weighted Micro Function Points (WMFP)
What are Weighted Micro Function Points (WMFP)?
Weighted micro function points (WMFP) is a measurement system used to estimate the size and complexity of software systems. It is based on the function point analysis (FPA) method, which is a widely used software measurement system that measures the functionality provided by a software system.
In WMFP, the functionality of a software system is measured using micro function points (MFP), which are a unit of measurement used to quantify the complexity of a software system. The MFPs are then weighted based on the difficulty of implementing the functionality, with more complex functionality being assigned a higher weight.
The weighted MFPs are then used to estimate the size and complexity of the software system, and to determine the resources and effort required to develop and maintain the system. WMFP is commonly used in software development to estimate the cost and schedule of a project and to assess the risks associated with the project.
Overall, WMFP is a useful tool for estimating the size and complexity of software systems, and for planning and managing software development projects.
