Application of the Functional Size Measurement Method on the Example of the National Register of Ukraine

  • A. V. HrechkoEmail author
  • A. O. Melashchenko


An example of using the COSMIC functional size estimation method for calculating the size of the Unified State Information and Telecommunication System “Electronic Register of Apostilles” at COSMIC functional points is considered. The approaches to estimating the complexity and cost of creating this system based on its functional size are discussed.
