How to determine the type of count

The first step in our FPA process is determining the type of count for the application at hand. Remember, Function Point Counts can be one of three different types:

Name Definition
Development Project FP Count Measures the functions provided to the users with the first installation of the software being delivered.
Enhancement Project FP Count Measures the modifications to an existing application.
Application FP Count Measures the functionality provided to users in an existing application.

Because we assume our FPTracker application will be a new product, the type of our count is a "Development Project FP Count".
