iDAVE



Lead Personnel: TBD


Objectives: Let users express time-phased information-processing capabilities in terms of equivalent software size and estimate time-phased software life-cycle investment costs in terms of software size and the project’s product, platform, people, and project attributes.


Approach: iDAVE’s overall structure includes Cost-Estimating Relationships (CERs) from COCOMO II. CERs let users express time-phased information-processing capabilities in terms of equivalent software size. They also let users estimate time-phased software life-cycle investment costs in terms of software size and the project’s product, platform, people, and project attributes.

Future Plans: Eventually, iDAVE might also include CERs for COTS-related software costs, inventory-based CERs for hardware components and COTS licenses, and activity-based CERs for associated investments in training and business process reengineering.
