Title: Software estimating: a description and analysis of current methodologies with recommendations on appropriate techniques for estimating RIT research corporation software projects
Author: Armstrong, Norma
Abstract: This thesis investigated, described, and analyzed six current software estimation methodologies. Included were Boehm's COCOMO, Esterling's Work Productivity Model, Putnam's Life Cycle Model and Albrecht's Function Point Determination. An implementation strategy for software estimation within RIT Research Corporation, a consulting firm, has been developed, based on this analysis. This strategy attempts to satisfy key needs and problems encountered by RIT Research estimators, while providing cost effective, accurate estimates.
