Cost Estimation Methods : A Review

  title={Cost Estimation Methods : A Review},
  author={V. Khatibi and D. N. Jawawi},
Project planning is one of the most important activities in software projects. Poor planning often leads to project faults and dramatic outcomes for the project team. If cost and effort are determined pessimistic in software projects, suitable occasions can be missed; whereas optimistic predictions can be caused to some resource losing. Nowadays software project managers should be aware of the increasing of project failures. The main reason for this problem is imprecision of the estimation. In… Expand
