Steps for Sizing an Existing ProjectThis process enables measuring programming cost and time invested in an existing software project according to the WMFP algorithm. This process is useful in assessing the effort (work hours) of a single developer or a development team (either in-house or outsourced). Note
that development processes exhibiting high amount of design change
require accumulating differential analysis results, Refer to compatibility notes for using Agile development processes with the the APPW statistical model. For measuring only the difference from the last version use the Differential Project Sizing process.
Step by step instructions:
sure you don't have any open ProjectCodeMeter report files in your
spreadsheet or browser, as these files will be updated
Using Windows explorer, Identify files to be estimated, usually only files created for this
project (excluding files auto-generated by the development tools,
data files, and files provided by a third party)
3. Copy these files to a separate new folder
4. Select this folder into the Project Folder textbox
5. Select the Settings describing the project (make sure not to select "Differential comparison").
6. Click the "Analyze" button. When analysis finishes, Time and Cost results will be shown at the bottom right
