This paper investigates the interrelationship among various measured characteristics of a software project, ranging from project model, size, and metrics used to govern the administration of the project. By analyzing various dimensions of project characteristics based on the underlying model, metrics and project technicality such as language and development paradigm, the authors' findings reveal that certain metrics and models are not suitable for small project since they possess insufficient information to extract and analyze the inherent characteristics of the project. As such, project managers should pay attention to proper selection of project parameters that are conducive toward accurate estimations.
