Software Effort Estimation (SEE) is one of the main activities in development of the software projects. Effort estimation in primary stages of development of the software is one of the important challenges the software projects manager faces. One of the common models of SEE is the Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO) model. In this model, the effort for development of the software projects is a function of the Kilo Line of Code (KLOC). The use of KLOC is a very applicable factor for effort… CONTINUE READING
