Software estimation provides an important tool for project planning; whose quality and accuracy greatly affect the success of a project. There are several area of the software engineering in which the authors can use the function point analysis like project planning, project construction, software implementation etc. In software development, accuracy and efficiency of cost estimation methodology for a web based application is very important. The proposed web based application (i.e. Expert estimator), is to produce accurate cost estimation and risk estimation throughout the software development cycle to determine feasibility of software project. Cost of the software projects depends on the project size, project type, cost adjustment factor, cost driven factors, nature and characteristics of the project.
