Software cost estimation is the prediction of development effort and calendar time required to develop any software project. It is considered to be the very fundamental task for successful execution of an on-going project as well as budgetary requirements of futuristic projects. As accuracy in software cost estimation is very hard because of the availability of vague information at the time of inception of the software project, it prompted many researchers to explore in this domain from past decades. Their pioneer works suggest a bulk of techniques for this purpose. However, because of the availability of large number of estimation techniques, it becomes hard for any software practitioners to select an appropriate one. To help the industry practitioners in these situations, a novel analogy-centered model based on differential evolution exploration process is proposed in this research study. The proposed model has been assessed on 676 projects from 5 different data sets and the results achieved are significantly better when compared with other benchmark analogy-based estimation studies. Furthermore, being the very less computational cost of the proposed model, it is suggested that the proposed model be considered as the preliminary stage of any analogy-based software estimation technique.

基于差异进化探索过程的类比为中心的软件成本估算

软件成本估算是对开发任何软件项目所需的开发工作和日历时间的预测。成功实施正在进行的项目以及未来项目的预算要求,这被认为是非常基本的任务。由于软件项目开始时尚缺乏模糊的信息,因此软件成本估算的准确性非常困难,这促使许多研究人员在过去的几十年中对该领域进行了探索。他们的先驱作品提出了许多用于此目的的技术。但是,由于有大量的估算技术,因此任何软件从业人员都很难选择合适的估算技术。为了在这种情况下帮助行业从业者,本研究提出了一种基于差异演化探索过程的类比为中心的新型模型。从5个不同的数据集对676个项目进行了评估,与其他基于基准类似物的估算研究相比,所获得的结果要好得多。此外,由于所提出模型的计算成本非常低,因此建议将所提出的模型视为任何基于类比的软件估计技术的初级阶段。
