Many people mix up these concepts, are IFPUG Function Points and NESMA Function Points the same? Without going into details, in this post I try to explain the similarities and differences between IFPUG and NESMA through a simple example.

If you delete a Customer, you also have to delete all its Adresses. Then, Address is not meaningful or is not significant to the business, in and of itself without the presence of Customer.

Address is entity dependent on Customer. Then, FPA counts the entities Customer and Address as one logical file
I need more information for answer this question. We need to know if an entity is or not meaningful or significant to the business.

We need to understand the business rules, for determine whether entity B is dependent on or independent of A.

When the relationship between two entities is 1 : 1, always A and B are dependent, and you should count 1 LF
This file could not be counted as part of functional size. The data must be maintained through one or more elementary processes (EI or EO), of the application being measured (ILF) or another application (EIF).
The size of a software product contains three dimensions: functional size, technical size and quality size
