Chapter Estimating Duration and Cost

Chapter 10. "Software Size and Reuse Estimating," described methods for estimating the size of a software project, typically in thousandsf software lines of code (KSLOC or KLOC). After the size has been established, the answers to other questions that are important to all stakeholders may also be estimated. Most customers and sponsors are less interested in how big the product will be than in how long it will take to produce it and how much it will cost. When a project manager has an idea of the total number of staff-months that will be required, he can begin to plan for recruiting, training, rotating, and other staffing management concerns. This chapter describes how to build upon the estimate of size, whether it is in KLOC, object points, function points, feature points, or another unit of measure.
