Parametric Models for Effort Estimation for Global Software Development

S. Ramacharan and K. Venu Gopala Rao
Abstract—The main objective & aim of this paper is to identify the problems that arise due to distributed software & offshore software development. This includes numerous critical success factors which may make vulnerable to the success of development. Generally for software development perfect estimation is crucial especially in globally distributed projects & offshore projects. This article introduces a Study based on COCOMO II, SLIM, ISBSG effort estimation methods. These methods enable more precise estimation methods than conventional methods.

Index Terms—COCOMO II, effort estimation methods, SLIM, ISBSG, off shoring, risk management.
