Effort estimation by analogy (EBA) is an established method for software effort estimation. For this paper, we understand EBA as a meta-method which needs to be instantiated and customized at different stages and decision points regarding a specific context. Some example decision problems are related to the selection of the similarity measures, the selection of analogs for adaptation or the weighting and selection of attributes. This paper proposes a decision-centric process model for EBA by… CONTINUE READING
