Recent research has resulted in mapping the COSMIC Functional Size Measurement method concepts to two Agile frameworks and to the JIRA tool.

The work was carried out by a graduate student, Saadia Ait, at the École de Technologie Supérieure à Montréal, Canada under the supervision of Alain Abran.

Saadia’s slides are all available on www.cosmic-sizing.org. They are entitled:

‘Agility and COSMIC Function Points in SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework)’ Download

‘Agility and COSMIC Function Points in DAD (Disciplined Agile Delivery)’ Download

‘Agility and COSMIC Function Points in JIRA (Project Management Tool for Agile Teams)’ Download

The slides illustrate how easy it is to adopt COSMIC sizing within either of these frameworks or to capture measurements and use them for project control and estimating in the JIRA tool.
