Alright guys let discuss it together.

Today is last date and we have even no idea that what to do :(

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COCOMO#Intermediate_COCOMOs here are the most important applicable cost driver Attributes but i m confused that how they been rated and also couldn't grasp the idea of Multiplying factors from the given info.

Here is also a formula to calculate EAF but so much confusion in all this.

Anyone there to clarify things.

Applicable cost driver attributes       Rating           Multiplying factors

CPLX                                                       High                              1.2

TIME                                                        Very high                      1.35

ACAP                                                      Low                              .95

MODP                                                     Average                   1.00

ab ratings Shop mall ka liy kia hain or  Multiplying factors kia hain?

2-----

(a)        Total Effort (in Person months).

Default Value: 152 hours per month

–        19 days at 8 hours per day.

baqi kia hin yaar?

cost driver attributes r on page 235, select any 4 which you think are main cost drivers for awebsite development

then give ratings high, low, very high, average to the attributes. according to ratins give the multiplying factors such as for v high 1.35. low 0.9.

multiply all " multiplying factors" you will get EAF.

Hope ab kuch na kuch to assignmant ban he jaye ga.

kese ne bana dia ya nai
