Software cost and effort estimation is the most critical task in handling software projects. Since it is very difficult to bridge the gap between estimated cost and actual cost, hence the accurate cost estimation is one of the challenging tasks in maintaining software projects. The software cost estimation is now one of Centre of attention for computer software industries. As software industry runs many projects simultaneously they have to prioritize different processes based on time, cost, and number of staff, sequentially. With the increasing complexity of software, the cost of the software development is also increasing.
