Impacts of Bad ESP (Early Size Predictions) on Software Effort Estimation

Abstract

Context: Early size predictions (ESP) can lead to errors in effort predictions for software projects. This problem is particular acute in parametric effort models that give extra weight to size factors (for example, the COCOMO model assumes that effort is exponentially proportional to project size). Objective: Are effort estimates crippled by bad ESP… (More)
