A Systematic Review of Software Development Cost Estimation Studies
TLDR
This paper identifies 304 software cost estimation papers in 76 journals and classifies the papers according to research topic, estimation approach, research approach, study context. Expand
Evidence-based software engineering
TLDR
We considered the impact that factors peculiar to software engineering (i.e. the skill factor and the lifecycle factor) would have on our ability to practice evidence-based software Engineering (EBSE). Expand
A review of studies on expert estimation of software development effort
TLDR
This paper provides an extensive review of studies related to expert estimation of software development effort. Expand
Evidence-Based Software Engineering for Practitioners
TLDR
We suggest that practitioners consider evidence-based software engineering (EBSE) as a mechanism to support and improve their technology adoption decisions. Expand
Experience With the Accuracy of Software Maintenance Task Effort Prediction Models
  • M. Jørgensen
  • Computer Science
  • IEEE Trans. Software Eng.
  • 1 August 1995
TLDR
The paper reports experience from the development and use of eleven different software maintenance effort prediction models. Expand
The Future of Empirical Methods in Software Engineering Research
TLDR
We present the vision that for all fields of software engineering (SE), empirical research methods should enable the development of scientific knowledge about how useful different SE technologies are for different kinds of actors. Expand
A Systematic Review of Software Development Cost Estimation Studies
TLDR
This paper aims to provide a basis for the improvement of software-estimation research through a systematic review of previous work. Expand
Conducting realistic experiments in software engineering
TLDR
An important goal of most empirical software engineering research is the transfer of research results to industrial applications. Expand
Software effort estimation by analogy and "regression toward the mean"
TLDR
This paper evaluates one adjustment approach, based on the findings made by Sir Francis Galton in the late 1800s regarding the statistical phenomenon "regression toward the mean" (RTM). Expand
An effort prediction interval approach based on the empirical distribution of previous estimation accuracy
TLDR
We introduce and evaluate a software development effort PI approach that is based on the assumption that the estimation accuracy of earlier software projects predicts the effort PIs of new projects. Expand
