Using Ensembles for Web Effort Estimation
Found in: 2013 ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement (ESEM)
By Damir Azhar,Patricia Riddle,Emilia Mendes,Nikolaos Mittas,Lefteris Angelis
Issue Date:October 2013
pp. 173-182
Background: Despite the number of Web effort estimation techniques investigated, there is no consensus as to which technique produces the most accurate estimates, an issue shared by effort estimation in the general software estimation domain. A previous st...
 
Ranking and Clustering Software Cost Estimation Models through a Multiple Comparisons Algorithm
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
By Nikolaos Mittas,Lefteris Angelis
Issue Date:April 2013
pp. 537-551
Software Cost Estimation can be described as the process of predicting the most realistic effort required to complete a software project. Due to the strong relationship of accurate effort estimations with many crucial project management activities, the res...
 
Comparing Software Cost Prediction Models by a Visualization Tool
Found in: Software Engineering and Advanced Applications, Euromicro Conference
By Nikolaos Mittas, Lefteris Angelis
Issue Date:September 2008
pp. 433-440
A crucial issue in the Software Cost Estimation area that has attracted the interest of software project managers is the selection of the best prediction method for estimating the cost of a project. Most of the prediction techniques estimate the cost from ...
 
Alternative methods using similarities in software effort estimation
Found in: Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Predictive Models in Software Engineering (PROMISE '12)
By Lefteris Angelis, Makrina Viola Kosti, Nikolaos Mittas
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 59-68
A large variety of methods has been proposed in the literature about Software Cost Estimation, in order to increase accuracy when predicting the effort of developing new projects. Estimation by Analogy is one of the most studied techniques in this area the...
     
StatREC: a graphical user interface tool for visual hypothesis testing of cost prediction models
Found in: Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Predictive Models in Software Engineering (PROMISE '12)
By Ioannis Mamalikidis, Lefteris Angelis, Nikolaos Mittas
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 39-48
Background: During the previous decades there has been noted a significantly increased research interest on the construction of prediction models for accurate estimation of software cost. Despite the development of sophisticated methodologies, there is a c...
     
Modeling the relationship between software effort and size using deming regression
Found in: Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Predictive Models in Software Engineering (PROMISE '10)
By Lefteris Angelis, Makrina Viola Kosti, Nikolaos Mittas, Vasiliki Argyropoulou
Issue Date:September 2010
pp. 1-10
Background: The relation between software effort and size has been modeled in literature as exponential, in the sense that the natural logarithm of effort is expressed as a linear function of the logarithm of size. The common approach to estimate the param...
     
Combining regression and estimation by analogy in a semi-parametric model for software cost estimation
Found in: Proceedings of the Second ACM-IEEE international symposium on Empirical software engineering and measurement (ESEM '08)
By Lefteris Angelis, Nikolaos Mittas
Issue Date:October 2008
pp. 1-87
Software Cost Estimation is the task of predicting the effort or productivity required to complete a software project. Two of the most known techniques appeared in literature so far are Regression Analysis and Estimation by Analogy. The results of the empi...
