Computer Science Technical Report TCD-CS-1999-21
Software project cost estimation is difficult because of problems of
quantifying project size and because of the continual emergence of new technology.
This presents as a classic example of a weak theory domain where experience is key
and appears well suited to CBR. Indeed there are several reports in the literature on
the use of CBR in project cost estimation. Research described to date has focused on
applications late in the development life cycle and in a narrow domain. In this
paper we describe existing research and explore the use of CBR beyond these
limits. We look at the use of CBR for estimation earlier in the life cycle and for use
in broader domains where more abstract remindings need to be supported.
