Abstract: Software Functional Size Measurement (FSM) methods are generic. Additional measurement rules, procedures and concept mappings between the generic measurement constructs and specific software artifacts are required in order to improve the measurement objectivity, consistency and enable measurement automation. Although FSM methods provide guidance for measuring software that has well-known architectures, there are opportunities to improve and automate measurements from the artifacts of such architectures. In this paper, a functional size measurement approach for the software that has the Three-Tier Object Relational Mapping architecture is proposed. The approach is based on two components: a mapping between the elements of this software architecture and the COSMIC method constructs and a prototype measurement tool that implements a measurement procedure based on this mapping. In the study the components of the approach are described, the results of a measurement case study are presented and the opportunities and the limitations of the approach are discussed.
