Layered Model to Estimate Effort, Performance and Cost of the Software Projects

In this paper, the authors present a layered model which determines the software metrics in the lower layer it consists of three primitive primary software engineering metrics; they are Person-Months (PM), Function-Points (FP), and Lines Of Code (LOC). The middle layer consists of the proposed function point which is obtained by grouping the adjustment factors. The proposed method uses fuzzy logic for quantifying the quality of requirements and is added as another adjustment factor, thus a fuzzy based approach for the Enhanced General System Characteristics to Estimate Effort of the Software Projects is obtained in the middle layer.
