Guidelines for Value Adjustment Factors Criteria

♦ Complexity ( C ) : Complexity of a function is derived from the logic and the


algorithm of the function. It depends on how many validation and how many condition are
there in the function

Complexity Factor Description No of conditions in a function


0.2 Low No more than five conditions
0.3 Medium Conditions between 6 to 11
0.5 High The functions containing more
than 11 conditions

♦ Interfacing ( I ) : Interfacing is an expression of the extent to which a modification in a given


function affects other parts of the system. The degree of interfacing is determined by ascertaining
first the logical data sets which the function in question can modify, then the other functions which
access these data sets.

Interfacing/ Dependency factor Interfacing of modules


Dependency
1 Low <30%
2 Medium 30 to 50%
4 High >50%

♦ Reusability (R) : This refers to the artifacts that are available in the organization database and
can be utilized in the project.

Reusability factor Reusability / Prior Description


Experience

Version 1.0 Classification: Birlasoft Internal


3 Low No other features is similar to this
2 Medium Upto 50% similarity is there with
some other feature
1 High More than 50% similarity is there
with some other feature

♦ Support System (S) : This refers to the availability of the supporting documents
that enable a better understanding of the application.

Availability Factor Availability Description


3 Low No supporting document or help is
available
2 Medium Some initial specs are available
and old system is existing for
reference
1 High More than 50% support document
is available

♦ Automated Tools (A) : The planning and control tools variable reflects the extent to
which automated resources are to be used for planning and control.

Availability factor Availability Description


3 Low No automated tools for defect
tracking and version control is
available
2 Medium Either an automated CM system or
an automated defect tracking
system is available

Version 1.0 Classification: Birlasoft Internal


1 High Both an automated defect tracking
system and CM are available

♦ Unilingual / Multilingual (L) : The number of languages on which the application needs to be
tested will have a direct impact on the testing effort.

Factor Number of languages Description


1 Low The application has to be tested on
a single language interface
2 Medium The application is to be tested on
two languages.
3 High The application is to be tested on
more than two languages.

♦ Third party interfacing (T) : An application having third party interfacing would have
more number of areas to be tested.

Factor Interfacing extent Description


3 High More than 60% functionality
interfaces with third party
applications
2 Medium Between 30% and 60%
functionality interfaces with third
party applications

Version 1.0 Classification: Birlasoft Internal


1 Low Less than 30% functionality
interfaces with third party
applications

♦ Roles and Browser Compatibility (V)- This refers to the number of roles and browsers
on which the application has to be tested.

Factor Roles and Browser Description


extensibility
3 High The number of roles to be tested is
more than 10
2 Medium The number of roles to be tested is
between 4 and 10
1 Low The number of roles to be tested is
less than 4

♦ Customer CTQ (U) : The importance the user attaches to a given application relative to
other systems

Importance Factor User- Importance Description


3 High The application is a real time
mission critical one
2 Medium The importance of the application
relative to the other application is
normal

Version 1.0 Classification: Birlasoft Internal


1 Low The importance of the application
relative to the other application is
low for instance applications to be
used for internal purposes.
