  title={Simplifying effort estimation based on Use Case Points},
  author={Miroslaw Ochodek and Jerzy R. Nawrocki and K. Kwarciak},
  journal={Information & Software Technology},
Context: The Use Case Points (UCP) method can be used to estimate software development effort based on a use-case model and two sets of adjustment factors relating to the environmental and technical complexity of a project. The question arises whether all of these components are important from the effort estimation point of view. Objective: This paper investigates the construction of UCP in order to find possible ways of simplifying it. Method: The cross-validation procedure was used to compare… CONTINUE READING
