  1. 1. Exploring Software Cost Estimation Inaccuracy

    Author : Ana Magazinius; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; organizational politics; estimation inhibitors; project management; software cost and effort estimation; learning in organizations; informal use of estimates;

    Abstract : The inaccuracy of software cost estimates has for long been a source of frustration to software practitioners and cost estimation researchers. Despite huge efforts to improve this important practice, estimation accuracy is still low. This thesis uses empirical and theoretical evidence to investigate why this problem persists. READ MORE

  2. 2. Efficient Automatic Change Detection in Software Maintenance and Evolutionary Processes

    Author : Sebastian Hönel; Morgan Ericsson; Welf Löwe; Anna Wingkvist; Přemek Brada; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Software Maintenance; Software Evolution; Effort Estimation; Commit Classification; Computer Science; Datavetenskap; Software Technology; Programvaruteknik;

    Abstract : Software maintenance is such an integral part of its evolutionary process that it consumes much of the total resources available. Some estimate the costs of maintenance to be up to 100 times the amount of developing a software. READ MORE

  3. 3. Size Estimation of Real-Time Software Components - A System Perspective

    Author : Kenneth Lind; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; COSMIC Function Points; software code size; Functional Size Measurement; software components; system architecture.;

    Abstract : The demands and expectations on the system architectures of contemporary consumer products like cars are increasing for each product generation. New features using new sensors and actuators, with different variants on different markets, and that interact with other features, create additional complexity in the system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring Cost Estimation Inaccuracy - Why do practitioners still fail to predict the actuals?

    Author : Ana Magazinovic; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Software Development Cost Estimation;

    Abstract : The purpose of this research is to further explore why practitioners’ ability to predict actual results is still not satisfactory. This problem was investigated from two perspectives. First, the practitioners view on causes of inaccurate cost estimates was explored in a quantitative multiple case study. READ MORE

  5. 5. Supporting Effort Estimation in Agile Software Development

    Author : Muhammad Usman; []

    Abstract : Background: In Agile Software Development (ASD) planning is valued more than the resulting plans. Planning and estimation are carried out at multiple levels in ASD. Agile plans and estimates are frequently updated to reflect the current situation. It supports shorter release cycles and flexibility to incorporate changing market and customer needs. READ MORE
