      Werner,
      The core IDX application was measured by Jeff Sutherland. I believe that
      there were 12,000 function points, a really dense application. The radiology
      application, developed from scratch, was 4-5000 function points.

      Werner:

      I don't have an exact count. However, there
      are 3-10 people per team, and on the average
      probably 5.

      That would make our total count something like:

      5x12 + shared resources.

      Shared resources, if you include management are:

      - 12 managers
      - 9 architecture people
      - 5 system support
      - 5 testing team

      Total people involved in production systems now =
      60+31 = ~91

      Total stories, is harder to evaluate, so this number
      might be less accurate. We had about 20 stories
      per application, including reports, so there must be
      something in the order of:

      12x20 ~ 240 stories

      Like in most systems, some stories are easy, CRUD
      like, and some very complex involving as many
      as 20 independent transactions.

      In the future, the average number will grow
      dramatically because there are a couple of
      applications that get to be as large as 200
      stories,
