Function Point Approach (FPA) Estimation

By srini_tanla ·

I would like to know how can an Functional Points counted for Overall Project can be equated with Efforts interms of PMdays ? i.e. How can we equate (n) FPS = (n) PMdays

Is there any relationship? If yes, what is the formula ?

I would appreciate if any one could answer this question.
