  • COCOMO 81

    The original COnstructive COst MOdel (COCOMO) model published in 1981 and now referred to as COCOMO 81. It predicts software development effort, schedule, and effort distribution via point estimates.

    COnstructive Product Line Investment MOdel consists of a product line development cost model and an annualized post-development life cycle extension. It focuses on modeling the portions of the software that involve product-specific newly-built software, fully reused black-box product line components, and product line comp

  • Agile COCOMO

    A COCOMO tool that is very simple to use and easy to learn. Incorporates the full COCOMO parametric model and uses analogy-based estimation to generate accurate results for a new project. The analogy is based on already completed projects and only changes in COCOMO parameters.
