Functional size determines how much functionality software provides by measuring the aggregate amount of its cohesive execution sequences. Alan Albrecht first introduced the concept in 1979. Since he originally described the function point analysis (FPA) method, researchers and practitioners have developed variations of functional size metrics and methods. The authors discuss the conceptual similarities and differences between functional size measurement methods and introduce a model for unification.
