The vital task of accurate Software Cost Estimation predictions remains a challenging problem attracting the interest of researchers and practitioners.Although Least Squares (LS) regression and Estimation by Analogy (EbA) are two of the most widely applied methods,there seems to be a discrepancy in choosing the best prediction technique. In this paper, we further extend our previous work on the utilization of a semi-parametric model,called LSEbA that achieves to combine the above-mentioned… CONTINUE READING
