Enhancement node - AEP Details


As explained in Enhancement node - Right hand panel, the formula used to generate AEP information are complex and use a variety of intermediary metrics. To help understand how AEP is generated, a Display AEP Detail button is available and can display these intermediary metrics and formula in a text file:

When clicked, the CAST Transaction Configuration Center will generate a text file and open it in your default text editor. This text file explains how the AEP values were calculated:

Below is an explanation of the abbreviations used in the text file:

I. FUNCTIONAL PART

I.a TRANSACTIONAL FUNCTIONS

Total Nb Of TFTotal Number of Transactional Functions
AFP SubTotal TFTotal Number of Function Points from Transactional Functions
Nb of TF AddedTotal Number of Added Transactional Functions
AFP AddedTotal number of Added Functions Points
AEFP AddedTotal number of Added Automated Enhancement Function Points
CF distribution AddedIf Added Transactional Functions exist, then the distribution of Complexity Factor is displayed here as:

NB of TF with CF = 1 ( for added it is always 1 )

Nb of TF DeletedTotal Number of Deleted Transactional Functions
AFP DeletedTotal number of Deleted Functions Points
AEFP DeletedTotal number of Deleted Automated Enhancement Function Points
CF distribution DeletedIf Deleted Transactional Functions exist, then the distribution of Complexity Factor is displayed here as:

NB of TF with CF = 0.40 ( for Deleted it is always 0.40 )

Nb of TF ModifiedTotal Number of Modified Transactional Functions
AFP ModifiedTotal number of Modified Functions Points
AEFP ModifiedTotal number of Modified Automated Enhancement Function Points
CF distribution ModifiedIf Modified Transactional Functions exist, then the distribution of Complexity factor is displayed here as:
