Q. 01   Discuss the problem addressed in research paper “A review of studies on expert estimation of software development effort”?

Answer
Every manager needs to be intelligent to analyze problems scientifically and with the aid of the modern of analytical tools provided by management science and operations research. In this research paper we know that the use estimation is the leading strategy when estimating software development effort. Every manager wants to be able to respond circumstances quickly.
The main problems are following
The main problem of is that the presentation of the software development estimation is worse than the others efforts. The problem with these is may be the judgment is not correct. The main problem of that reason we did not see the old performance. We not see the earlier development tasks. The easy failure model predicted maintenance problems better than software maintainers with long experience



Q. 02   Elaborate purposed solution in 7-10 lines in your own words given in research paper “A review of studies on expert estimation of software development effort”?

Answer
In this study the results from many individual decision studies show that people get in excess of positive when forecast own performance. A general fact seems to be that the level of over optimism increase with the level of control e.g., a software developer responsible for the whole task to be estimated is supposed to be more over-optimistic than a project leader that plans and supervises the work of other project members.









Q. 03   Discuss the limitations of the paper or further research issues in the paper “A review of studies on expert estimation of software development effort”?

Answer
The only restriction is that just attaches with your matter and talk only about it. As once you have started the topic then you can not make bring changes in it. Present limitations based on your conclusions. Avoid the appeal to present advice based on your own beliefs or bias that is not specifically supported by your data. Recommendations fall into two categories. The first is recommendations to the study sponsor. What actions do you recommend they take based upon the data? The second is recommendations to other researchers. There are almost always ways that a study could be improved or refined. What would you change if you were to do your study over again? These are the recommendations to other researchers.
