Effort Estimation Based on Complexity and Size of Relational Database System
Software cost estimation is an important activity of software project management. Database plays a very important role in data centric software. In this paper a model for estimating the effort of database development based on complexity and size of the database of relational model has been proposed. The proposed work also includes the new metrics on estimation of complexity and size of the database part of data centric software. The metrics has been validated with student projects.
