Before software development projects start, customers and managers want to know the eventual project cost with as much accuracy as possible. In this paper, the authors address the challenge of estimating eventual software system size during a development project. The approach is to build a family of estimation models that use information about architectural design characteristics of the evolving software product as leading indicators of system size. Four models were developed to provide an increasingly accurate size estimate throughout the design process.
