Question No 1
How a change process carried out in a projects?  Also differentiate among its different stages?

Solution
In The transform Management method is the system used to begin, record, measure, endorse and decide project modify. Project changes are necessary when its judge necessary to change the scope, time or cost of one or more before standard project deliverables. Mainly change will influence the financial plan and timetable of the project. The use of the recognized change management process will be compulsory when any changes are revealed. Conclusion to analyze and result to carry on with changes will be made by the Client Manager and the Project Manager if they do not collision between scope budget and schedule. Changes which do impact forwarded to the Steering Committee for reconsider. The Steering Committee may make a decision that managerial Sponsor sanction and review is mandatory earlier than making a judgment.

There are different stages which areas under:

Identify (recognize and record documents what is required change)
Validate (confirm the change is applicable and need management)
Analyze (monitor the cost, efforts impact of change record timetable)
Control (come to a decision whether to perform the change)
Action (execute decision)
Close (confirm that action is complete)




Question No 2
In table 1.0 given below indicates estimated inputs, outputs, inquiries, files and external interfaces for software. The given table 1.1 indicates the values from F1-F14 values?

Solution

Sensibly if we divide our software application into parts it will always come to one or more of the 5 functionalities. A software application cannot be copied without using any one of the functionalities.
Once the TDI is determined we can put it in the formula below to get the VAF.
VAF = 0.65 + (0.01 * TDI)
Finally the Adjusted Function Points or Function Points are
FP = UFP * VAF
Now these FP's can be used to determine the Size of the Software, also can be used to quote the price of the software, get the time and effort required to complete the software.
Effort in Person Month = FP divided by no. of FP's per month
Schedule in Months = 70* 14/month
Optimal Schedule = 70 * 46^1/3 ~ 12 months
Optimal Team Size = 65 / 12 ~ 5 or 6 persons.
