This technique further refined as COCOMO II
considers a set of four "cost driver attributes" such as 1.
is a model to estimate costs and chronograms of development projects that uses the size as entrance in its phase of Initial Design.
The model is thoroughly described in the recent book, "Software Cost Estimation with COCOMO II
," by Barry Boehm.
Barry Boehm and others, recently released Software Cost Estimation with COCOMO II, published by Prentice-Hall.
The COCOMO II cost model provides a framework for communicating business decisions among the stakeholders of a software project.
He has been on the COCOMO II research team since its inception at USC's Center for Software Engineering.
In fact, we've built an implementation of COCOMO II
that illustrates the potential ROI that can be achieved through our Rational Suites(TM) product offering.
