Version 1.1

Abran, A., Lesterhuis, A., Symons, C.R.

This Guideline provides an overview of the factors that influence the quality of a functional size
measurement, particularly a COSMIC size measurement, and advises how to organize the
measurement process so as to obtain accurate size measurements and/or to improve measurement
Version 1.1 of the Guideline
• has the structure of a tutorial that could be used as self-learning material; tutors across the world can present the tutorial without much tailoring – and not requiring the specialized expertise of those who wrote these documents;
• is action-oriented: the actions to be taken by either the measurer or by the management have been grouped in separate sub-sections
