"Software Size and Effort Estimation at Early Stages of the Software Development Projects"

The aim of the project is to deliver software size and effort estimation methods and tools, which can be used also at early stages of software development projects.

Project is operating within the Foundation for Polish Science Ventures Programme co-financed by the EU European Regional Development Fund. The Ventures programme goal is to support young researchers who would like to develop innovative methods and tools which can be potentially used by industry enterprises. Our colleage - Mirosław Ochodek is a laureate of the first edition of the Ventures programme.


Project Manager: Mirosław Ochodek
