Abstract -
Software Cost Estimation is the most significant and demanding activity in Software development effort prediction. Software effort estimation is unpredictable in nature as it hugely depends upon some variables that are not known at the initial phase of development. Fuzzy analysis plays a main role to analyze and predict the Software cost estimation. Fuzzification is the one of the key attribute which includes the size of the project, incorporates expert’s knowledge in a well-defined manner, allows total transparency in the prediction system by prediction of results through rules or other means, adaptability towards continually changing development technologies and environments[10]. Properly addressing all these issues would position soft computing based prediction techniques as models of choice for effort prediction, considering the promising features already present in them are made. Cost Effective Software Evolution Exertion Appreciation is one of the most challenging tasks in software sector. Our most intension in this paper is to present the Fuzzy Analysis for the Cost Effective Software Evolution Exertion Appreciation [12].
