Estimation is essential and vital piece of software life cycle. It is important to do exact estimation however much as could be expected. Today in IT Industry, Estimation in agile process is essentially in view of heuristic methodologies like expert opinion and planning poker. Without coordinated with experts, it is exceptionally hard to estimate in Agile Process. There is need of an algorithmic strategy in this area which can do accurate Estimation. It has been watched that these techniques don't consider the fundamental variables influencing the cost, size and effort for estimation. Without recorded information and experts, existing estimation strategies, for example, analogy, are planning poker end up noticeably erratic. In this manner, there is a solid need to devise basic algorithmic strategy that joins the variables influencing the cost, size and effort of projects. The Agile approach to software development differs markedly from traditional development approaches such as Waterfall. As such, Agile requires its own method of estimation. In this paper we have provided a brief introduction to Agile software development estimation and how stories can be sized using Function Point Analysis (FPA) and can be use to determine a project team’s likely velocity.
