Interface and Technology

Let us briefly summarize the software project management tool developed in this work. In the simulation environment, users change and input all data with the Graphical User Interface based and Java Server Page. Logic programming is also implemented in Java. Mysql database is used to store simulation data. The interface described by Figure 2 allows the user to choose from a variety of functions in the left navigation menu of the window Decision Making Simulation, to set the simulation properties...

Data Structures in the Simulation

The particular data structures in any SPM tool should derive from project resources and project organization. In order to design the simulation environment as general as possible, we do not hard-encode the project structure. Instead, several online editor forms allow to add project components as needed and register their mutual relations (Project, Team, Member and Task Editors in Figure 2 also Resource Editor, not shown). The present java application stores all simulation data in a database...

Concluding Remarks

In spite of various established project management models and quality management systems, such as ISO-9001, Capability Maturity Model, or Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO), SPM simulation has not received sufficient attention in academia. Also software projects in businesses often suffer from inadequate management. The complexity of software projects with various stochastic features involved implies that an object-oriented computer simulation is a very appropriate approach. In addition, because...

Summary of Results

Table 6 presents summary results for all the systems discussed in this chapter it also includes the evaluation of the cost estimating model (CEM Lockheed Martin Stennis Operations, 2000 Rocket Propulsion Testing Lead Center, 1997, 1998). We do not know which engines were used for the development of CEM (i.e., we do not know what the training data were). The CEM results were therefore obtained on the entire set of 11 articles which almost certainly includes some, if not all, of the articles used...

Management Of Software Project

A successful project strategy is a balanced blend of development fundamentals, risk management, schedule-control, and mistake-avoidance techniques, adjusted to a certain trade-off in product quality, project cost and delivery schedule. One of important specific features in software projects is the huge range in productivity and ability of human resources. Therefore selection, organization, and motivation of the team are the key factors of SPM success or failure. In this chapter, we elaborate...

Anfis Systems For Cost Prediction Of Engine Tests

Most of the ANFIS systems were developed using grid partition for the generation of the single-output Sugeno-type fuzzy inference system FIS . We found, when working with the engine tests, that the results from grid partitioning were far superior to those from clustering. This is reasonable because the number of points is so small, that clustering is nearly impossible. When we tried using clustering with the component tests, for which we have somewhat larger though still very small training...
