Detailed Recording of Data Groups

Counting Logical Files

SCOPE allows you to create a detailed hierarchical model of your data as well as your functional processes. You can:

This hierarchical model aids in:

SCOPE also allows you to derive the complexity of a process automatically using the number of FTRs (Logical Data Groups) and DETs linked to the process, so the more completely you are able to document your count then the more accurately it can be sized.


If you already have a softcopy list of your Data Groups, RETs and DETs, cut and paste the list into the Master_SCOPE_Excel_Import_Template spreadsheet in the directory where you installed SCOPE. Follow the instructions in the ReadMe sheet and then import the list of FTRs, RETs and DETs into your SCOPE count.
