Having realistic estimates of effort at an early stage in a Web project's life is vital to the successful management of resources. The principles of the prediction process are identifying the influencing factors, gathering past project data, generating an effort prediction model, and assessing the effectiveness of such prediction model. Cost Estimation Techniques for Web Projects provides a step-by-step methodology to improving cost estimation practices for Web projects. Utilizing such techniques as stepwise regression modeling, case-base reasoning, classification and regression trees, and expert opinion, this book is a powerful tool for scholars, researchers, and practitioners in the areas of Web development, Web engineering, project management, and software engineering.
