Comparison of Various Techniques for Software Effort Estimation
The most significant activity in software project management is software development effort prediction. Software development effort estimation is the process of predicting the most realistic use of effort required for developing software based on some parameters. Software effort estimation at early stages of project development holds great significance for the industry to meet the competitive demands of today's market. In this paper, software development effort estimation using fuzzy triangular membership function, GBell membership function, Gauss 2 membership function and trapezoidal membership function is implemented using Mamdani type fuzzy inference system of fuzzy logic toolbox software of Matlab 7.5 and the results of these membership functions are compared with each other and with COCOMO model.
