Function points and feature points are methods of estimating the "amount of
functionality" required for a program, and are thus used to estimate project
completion time.  The basic idea involves counting inputs, outputs, and other
features of a description of functionality.  Bruno Peeters has collected a
biblography on function points at http://www.qucis.queensu.ca/Software-
Engineering/funcpoints.html.
