A Comparison of Modeling Techniques for Software Development Effort Prediction

  title={A Comparison of Modeling Techniques for Software Development Effort Prediction},
  author={Stephen G. MacDonell and Andrew R. Gray},
Software metrics are playing an increasingly important role in software development project management, with the need to effectively control the expensive investment of software development of paramount concern. Research examining the estimation of software development effort has been particularly extensive. In this work, regression analysis has been used almost exclusively to derive equations for predicting software process effort. This approach, whilst useful in some cases, also suffers from… CONTINUE READING
