Part of the The Fraunhofer IESE Series on Software and Systems Engineering book series (SSENG)


This chapter summarizes the CoBRA application in the context of Allette Systems Pty. Ltd., Australia (Allette). In the context of Allette, we developed a very simple effort model. Based on the experiences from the previous applications and the small size of the Allette company, we aimed at building a simple effort model. In particular, we avoided modeling indirect influences on effort.
