Dácil Castelo, LEDAmc’s Productivity Area Manager, has been re-elected as a member of the IFPUG Board of Directors. Below you can read the news in the media that have echoed.


On 15 September, the result of the voting by the members of IFPUG (International Function Point Users Association) was announced, resulting in the re-election of Dácil Castelo de la Torre, LEDAmc’s Director of Estimates and Productivity.

In this way, Dácil Castelo will continue on the Board of Directors for three more years. After the election of the board, the positions on the board were renewed. Dácil Castelo remains in her position as Director of Measurement Standards, and, as such, is responsible for coordinating the functional (Function Points) and non-functional (SNAP) metrics committees. These are responsible for ensuring the integrity of the model, settling implementation disputes and keeping it up to date with international best practice.

The result was announced in Baltimore, where the last event organised by IFPUG took place, an unConference where the agenda was decided by the participants themselves, who formed groups to discuss the selected topics (such as: metrics in Agile, Function Points in Outsourcing Contracts or how to measure Pokemon Go in Function Points) and then share them with the rest of the audience. In this way, instead of the typical conference with lectures and listeners, there was a dynamic meeting where IFPUG experts and professionals participated actively.

IFPUG (International Function Point Users Group) is an international non-profit organisation, which supports two standard methodologies for measuring software sizing: Function Point Analysis for functional sizing and the Non-Functional Software Assessment Process.

LEDAmc (, a consultancy specialising in IT governance, has defined a model for controlling estimates, production and productivity of software development (metrics, tools, operations and dashboards) for which it takes reference values from Spain, Europe and Latin America.
