MULTI STAGE SOFTWARE PROJECT EFFORTS ESTIMATION

Chetan Nagar & Dr Anurag Dixit

 

 

ABSTRACT

The staff resources or effort required for a software project are notoriously difficult to estimate in advance. Accurate effort estimation is essential for the success of a software project. In practice; many industries still use ad hoc methods for efforts estimation. Efforts estimation is an activity performed in analysis phase of software development. All the requirements are not exactly known in this phase, because user exactly does not know what he wants and developer does not know what is to be built.
Lot of changes take place in latter phases of development, due to this reason effort estimation failed. Unclear requirement is a measure problem in efforts estimation. This paper aims to suggest a new approach of multistage efforts estimation. We intend to perform efforts estimation in more than one step of software development and check the difference to establish optimal level of manpower required for a project.
