Abstract

In an earlier work, we gave a precise definition of Software power, and also
proposed a function oriented metric for measuring Software power. In this paper, we implemented the proposed model. The software application used to implement the proposed model is an application Software called ‘DISCREPANCY', developed by the Computer Center of the University of Benin for the Audit department of the University. Five (5) computers with different processor speeds were used to run DISCREPANCY and the execution time (TIME) in each case was recorded. We then obtain the application functions point count. Our result shows that the proposed metric is computable, consistent in its use of unit, and is programming language independent

Keywords: Software attributes, Software power, measurement, Software metric, function point.
