This paper presents an improvement of an effort estimation method that can be used to predict the level of effort for software development projects. A new estimation approach based on a two-phase algorithm is used. In the first phase, we apply a calculation based on use case points (UCPs). In the second phase, we add correction values (a 1, a 2) obtained via least squares regression. This approach employs historical project data to refine the estimate. By applying the least squares regression… CONTINUE READING
