Software cost estimation in global software development using hybrid approach

Author(s): Mehmood Ahmed, Noraini Ibrahim, Wasif Nasir

GSD (Global software development) has surged in current years. Numerous software ventures currently use asynchronous association amongst physically dispersed crews in different time regions. Just like to aspects such as exertion consumed in team-structure and awareness handover in creating a software invention construction that can be effortlessly dispersed and reduces cross-tie communiqué, facilitating communiqué among distant teams cooperating on consistent parts of the structural design, and their day-to-day operations, estimating software costs for such projects becomes difficult. We describe the additional cost drivers of distributed development in this article and assess how essential each of these variables is to the global cost of the software expansion plan. We propose various enhancements to COCOMO-II, the utmost frequently in use software expansion cost estimating exemplary, to accommodate for these new challenges.
