A Man-hour Estimation Tool Focused on Graphical User Interface

Yoshiharu Imai, Yoshikatsu Ohta, and Hidetomo Suzuki
Abstract—Purpose of this study is to develop a software development man-hour estimation tool which gives same result without regard for estimators' experience.
This study is based on an idea that there is no "one true value" of software development man-hour estimation or it is too difficult to find the value because every software development teams are different on experience and technique. This study focused on finding an estimation value which every engineers consent to use or at least to stop protesting against to use.
In order to find the value, a questionnaire of software development man-minutes on each component of GUI was implemented using both of WEB site and papers. This study's target software development estimation tool was made as a spreadsheet with pairs of component name and value and everyone get same estimation result by using it only counting number of components on screen design documents and filling numbers of components on the spreadsheet.

Index Terms—Software development cost, estimate, graphical user interface.
