Show Twelve features the second part of an interview with Charles Symons on Cosmic Full Function Points. COSMIC – Full Function Points are one of the 4 functional metrics recognized by ISO as international standards. The two interviews included great material for anyone interested in IT measurement. Charles is the creator of MARKII Function Points and one of the founding members of COSMIC. Information on COSMIC can be found at http://www.cosmicon.com/advantagecs.asp and http://www.gelog.etsmtl.ca/cosmic-ffp/index.html.

The essay for this cast is titled, Why Are Requirements So Hard to Get Right, Process. This is Part Two of the essay cycle on requirements. The text of this commentary can be found at my personal blog, www.tcagley.wordpress.com.
