FURPS is an acronym for Functionality, Usability, Reliability, Performance and Supportability. At the end of this paper, a calculation tool is provided to support an objective decision for your development approach. The calculation sheet lists these seven criteria and illustrates a set of relative scores per criterion for each approach.
