Abstract

In any industry, the cost and effort estimation for any production plays a vital role in the success of that
particular business and the same is applicable for the software industry. The wrong software cost estimation may lead
any software company to a major loss. There are some standard variants of COCOMO available for the software cost
estimation. But still there is a scope of improvement in them, as they alone are not that much sufficient for the proper
cost estimation. Here we have developed an easy-to-access software cost estimation tool which will use the work
breakdown structure along with COCOMO II for the more accurate software cost estimation and it ensures an
effective and faster approach for estimating software project development cost and effort.
