Abstract:

This report describes the development of a software life cycle costing model. The model reduces life cycle cost to a function of three parameters which are in turn functions of a number of factors that describe the software system. A step-by-step algorithm is presented for building the model from raw data. The model is exercised as an example with a small amount of data. Sensitivity analysis is used to help select the most salient facors. Brief descriptions of management applications and recommendations are presented. Appendices describe sample data and two computer programs used to develop the model. Author
