A new software cost estimation approach is proposed in this paper, which attempts to cluster empirical, non-homogenous project data samples via an entropy-based fuzzy k-modes clustering algorithm. The target is to identify groups of projects sharing similar characteristics in terms of cost attributes or descriptors, and utilise this grouping information to provide estimations of the effort needed for a new project that is classified in a certain group. The effort estimates produced address the… CONTINUE READING
