Insights on Algorithmic and Non-algorithmic Cost Estimation Approaches Used by Current Software Industries across India

Authors(1) :-Praveen Naik

The survey comprises excellent effort on cost estimation of algorithmic and non-algorithmic approaches of current software industries. Current industry datasets are gathered and investigation is done from the current datasets. The data gathered from the industries, which are located in Indian cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune. Objective of this paper was to identify the cost estimation practices used in the current software industries.
