IFPUG GSC, a Project Estimation Approach

leave a comment »

The value adjustment factor (VAF) is based on 14 general system characteristics (GSC’s) that rate the general functionality of the application being counted. Each characteristic has associated descriptions that help determine the degrees of influence of the characteristics. The degrees of influence range on a scale of zero to five, from no influence to strong influence. The IFPUG Counting Practices Manual provides detailed evaluation criteria for each of the GSC’S, the table below is intended to provide an overview of each GSC. ref

General System Characteristic

Brief Description

1. Data communications How many communication facilities are there to aid in the transfer or exchange of information with the application or system?
2. Distributed data processing How are distributed data and processing functions handled?
3. Performance Was response time or throughput required by the user?
4. Heavily used configuration How heavily used is the current hardware platform where the application will be executed?
5. Transaction rate How frequently are transactions executed daily, weekly, monthly, etc.?
6. On-Line data entry What percentage of the information is entered On-Line?
7. End-user efficiency Was the application designed for end-user efficiency?
8. On-Line update How many ILF’s are updated by On-Line transaction?
9. Complex processing Does the application have extensive logical or mathematical processing?
10. Reusability Was the application developed to meet one or many user’s needs?
11. Installation ease How difficult is conversion and installation?
12. Operational ease How effective and/or automated are start-up, back-up, and recovery procedures?
13. Multiple sites Was the application specifically designed, developed, and supported to be installed at multiple sites for multiple organizations?
14. Facilitate change Was the application specifically designed, developed, and supported to facilitate change?

Once all the 14 GSC’s have been answered, they should be tabulated using the IFPUG Value Adjustment Equation (VAF)
