    Abstract

    Measurement is a fundamental part of any managed activity and functional size of software is the core to successful management of any software work of any magnitude [10,12,15,16]. It is crucial for estimating project team efforts and normalizing quality attributes such as defect rates, defect density, speed of delivery, and project duration. This paper discusses aspects of the measurement challenge in the context of cross-organizational implementation of large business information systems, namely Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. We make an account of observations in ERP functional size measurement practice and literature, identify aspects of the gap between practice and research, and report on a recent research initiative at the University of Twente that we plan to carry out with strong industrial participation.
