Practical Guidelines for Expert-Judgment-Based Software Effort Estimation
May/June 2005 (vol. 22 no. 3)
pp. 57-63
Magne Jørgensen, Simula Research Laboratory
Simple process changes can lead to more realistic software development effort estimates. Seven easy-to-implement guidelines, based on industrial experience and empirical studies, apply the latest findings for judgment-based estimation of software project effort. Taken together, the guidelines here don?t provide a complete estimation process or discuss all relevant variables. Rather, they supplement existing methods by supporting the expert judgment process with some useful, easily implemented practices.
Index Terms:
project management, software cost estimation, software development management
