The authors have developed three distinct UML approaches to calculate effort corresponding to the early, mid, and late stages of design using Carlson's UML Design Methodology. In early-design, the focus of the effort calculation is on the object components and their Requirement Responsibilities parameter, shown with the object-relationship diagram, to estimate effort as Object Points. In mid-design, the object's average fan-in and fan-out parameter, shown in the interaction diagram, is used to estimate effort as interaction points. In late-design, the focus of the effort calculation is on the messages sent and received by the objects, shown in the interaction diagram, to estimate effort at the micro-level as message points.
