Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the Common Software Measurement International Consortium , the 'COSMIC' organization. Here you will find all the information you need to know about the COSMIC functional size measurement method, the support that is available, and the organization behind it.

COSMIC is a voluntary, world-wide grouping of software metrics experts.  Started in 1998, COSMIC has developed the most advanced method of measuring a functional size of software.  Such sizes are important as measures of software project work-output and for estimating project effort, etc

The method, is applicable to business, real-time and infrastructure software, is easy to learn and simple to use.  The method is entirely 'open'; all method documentation is available in the public domain for free download.

There is a ‘COSMIC Users’ group on Linkedin, the social networking site for professionals. Here you can ask questions about the method, join discussions and receive announcements about new developments or uses of the COSMIC methods. To join the COSMIC Users Group, you will first need to join Linkedin. Go to www.linkedin.com.

For information about activity in your country, contact your International Advisory Council Member.
