This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
We use a Client provided tool (Spread sheet) for effort estimation for our project .
We need to fill following details in that tool :-
1. If we think a new java class needs to be created for implementing the solution , we will fill the complexity of the class that will be created .
2. Our prior experience on implementing a similar java class .
And the tool will give us the effort based on our input.
I got to know from Wiki that there are several kinds of estimation approaches .
1. Analogy-based estimation
2. WBS-based (bottom up) estimation
3. Parametric models
4. Size-based estimation models
5. Group estimation
6. Mechanical combination
7. Judgmental combination
Under which of these approached do our approach fall in ??
