The following discussion focuses on a specific example project in order to illuminate some of the project planning implications. Assume a large, 100,000 source-line (100-KDSI) mission-critical system (for example, control of a power plant) built under contract for a government agency. Figure B-l illustrates the COCOMO-estimated profile for this project. COCOMO would estimate 900 staff-months for development plus 72 staff-months for requirements specification for this project. The schedule required would be 22 months from initiation of design through test, plus 8 months for requirements.
