The important aspect of planning and managing software development project is to estimate the cost of a project. There are several methods for estimating the cost of a software development project, and the Analogy method is a method which gives relatively better estimates. This paper shows that the modified Analogy method selects a closer project reference, estimates more accurate project effort and cost. This study enhances the cost estimate technique by including valid and complete cost parameters, therefore the estimate of a project cost is better than the result of the standard Analogy method.

Bahasa Abstract

Salah satu aspek penting pada perencanaan dan manajemen proyek rancang bangun perangkat lunak adalah mengestimasi biaya sebuah proyek. Beberapa metode telah digunakan untuk mengestimasi biaya suatu proyek perangkat lunak, dan metode Analogy merupakan metode baru yang menghasilkan estimasi relatif akurat. Makalah ini menunjukkan hasil studi penyempurnaan metode Analogy, yang meliputi penentuan model matematis untuk memilih proyek sejenis sebagai acuan estimasi, serta penentuan estimasi effort dan biaya. Studi ini menghasilkan penyempurnaan teknik estimasi biaya dengan parameter biaya lebih lengkap sehingga hasil estimasi relatif lebih baik daripada metode Analogy baku.
