Abstract—It is well known fact that predicting software effort for the software development projects with any acceptable degree remains challenging. In this paper we have used the organic software projects because in each case the projects size lies between 2-50 KLOC. In this paper we have applied the linear regression model i.e. Effort = -1.5 + 0.1804 FP to predict the software project effort and function point. After obtaining the software effort, project manager can arrange the project progress, control the cost and ensures the quality more accurately.
Index Terms—Software effort, function point, MRE.
