Software Cost Management with COCOMO II

Barry Boehm, University of Southern California

COCOMO II updates the 1981 Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO) to address the new ways that software is being developed and managed, including non-sequential process models, applications composition, product line management, distributed development and applications, and rapid application development. Barry Boehm summarizes these trends and shows how COCOMO II and its emerging extensions are addressing them. Learn how COCOMO II can be used for a variety of management decision situations, such as linking tactical project management to strategic productivity and cycle time improvement management via a quantitative metrics-based approach.
