COCOMO II
COCOMO II

COCOMO II is a revised and extended version of the model, built upon the original COCOMO. It more easily allows the estimation of object-oriented software, software created via spiral or evolutionary models, and applications developed from commercial-off-the-shelf software. It

SLIM - A Mathematical Model
SLIM - A Mathematical Model

With regression modeling, the stress is on constructing a formula that best represents scattered data points. In mathematical modeling, the stress is on matching the data to the form of an existing mathematical function. In the early 1960s, Peter V. Norden of IBM concluded that

Estimating Duration and Cost - Summary
Estimating Duration and Cost - Summary

Estimating product size, staff effort, project schedule, and cost are inextricably entwined during the project planning process, which takes place for the first time near the beginning of the project life cycle and many times thereafter, generally at the end of each major phase.

Assigning Resources
Assigning Resources

When you have a WBS list of modified activities that match the life cycle you have selected for a project, you are ready to allocate resources to them. This should be easy, right? The database people get the database assignments, and the testers get the testing assignments. Not so

Identifying and Documenting the Project Roles and Skills Needed
Identifying and Documenting the Project Roles and Skills Needed

The project manager has to make a decision who does what and who decides what on the project. Deciding who does what is an exercise in career planning, balancing learning opportunities against accomplishing work on time and managing egos. The particular skills required for

Choosing an Organizational Form
Choosing an Organizational Form

Just as there are several product development life cycles to choose from when planning a software development project, there are many organizational forms to choose from. How many kinds are there? Where did they come from? Where are they going? Which one is best under

What Is an Organization
What Is an Organization

At this point in a project management life cycle, we are performing the how planning activities to build the what that the customer wants. When we have the work breakdown structure (WBS) developed enough to represent the work to do, we can consider possible organizational

What Are Dependencies
What Are Dependencies

Dependencies are one form of constraint for any project. Remember the triple constraint shown in What Is a Project Figure ? It says that scope, schedule, and cost are the triple constraints of any project, with quality measurement permeating all three parts. Hard deadlines and

Brainstorming Dependencies and Activities
Brainstorming Dependencies and Activities

In Identifying the Tasks and Activities we considered identification of the activities and tasks that might be required in a software development project. Particularly, we saw how the 65 activities from 17 software engineering processes explained in IEEE 1074 could be

Scheduling the Work
Scheduling the Work

The schedule is derived from the WBS and contains activity duration, important milestones and work products to be produced, and who is responsible for them. Generally represented as a Gantt chart, but equally useful as a table, the schedule adds flesh to the WBS backbone,
