ScopeMaster® is a cloud-hosted tool for improving the quality, estimation and delivery of software projects. ScopeMaster® analyses written requirements or user stories to deliver insight, exposing potential defects, improvement suggestions and functional size estimates that can be used to make your software projects more successful.
ScopeMaster’s automated analyser uses a combination of AI and other techniques tuned to the nature of software requirements in order to expose defects and estimate size. Using ScopeMaster, you can achieve requirements QA productivity improvements of up to 20x.
Scopemaster® has been developed in the UK and is owned by ScopeMaster Ltd. The automated analysis performed by ScopeMaster is unique and is subject to International patent application (PCT/GB2019/050478) originally from February 2018. ScopeMaster® is a registered trademark 3291993.
Thank you for your interest in ScopeMaster.
I set out to create a tool that would help me as a software project manager with the job of measuring software size. I learned about COSMIC function points and wanted to use them instead of IFPUG FP which I had been using successfully for many years. It turns out that COSMIC was an excellent choice and then, largely by accident I created a tool that is very effective in finding defects in requirements.
Nearly a year later, it is so exciting to see analysts and project managers getting such significant and rapid benefits from using ScopeMaster. The software development industry has had such a poor reputation for predictable, on-time, on budget projects. I am convinced that ScopeMaster has the potential to make a notable contribution to improving the reputation of software project deliveries.
I am very grateful for the advice and wisdom of experts who have helped me validate ScopeMaster, especially Lonnie Franks, Charles Symons, Professor Alain Abran and Bernard Lonedix. I am also indebted to Capers Jones whose books have inspired me on this journey.
