Hi all,

Assuming I have an applicant information entry screen, the number and types of fields on which can be defined by the system administrator, how do I go about counting ILFs and DETs for the related data functions? So far I have come up with something like this:

ILF #1 (control information): Field Metadata, 1 RET, ~3 DET (name, type, mandatory)
ILF #2 (business data): Applicant Data, most likely 1 RET, but how many DET? Of course I could count it as 2 DET (Field ref, Value), but I am not sure that would be correct

And when it comes to an EI, say, "Add New Applicant", things become even more complicated, because the number of DET corresponding to the user-editable fields is totally dependent on the control information in ILF #1, and I am out of ides here

Anyone fancy to help with that?

Thanks in advance!

I would say the max number of the field which is customized by the system administrator...

Function Points Analysis ... is dynamic. ... No, there could be a control input that does not update an ILF. 4. ... The screen would be rated as a low EI (10 DET's, 1 FTR). 8. ... Is the Cancel command button counted as a data element?
