MEDIA REVIEWS

"One of the most significant software technology accomplishments of the last quarter of this century is the increasing usage of software parametric models for resource estimation and project management. There is n especially wide familiarity of the COCOMO model across a range of academia, industry and government. The publication in 1981 of the original COCOMO model in Software Engineering Economics remains the one technical reference that everyone involved in this field of endeavor has on their bookshelf and is still in continuos usage. The development of the COCOMO II model encompasses key advances in software technology. This new textbook on COCOMO II as we enter this next millennium will fill the same crucial niche and should be a must as a companion volume on every bookshelf."-Marilee Wheaton, Director, Office of Cost Estimation, TRW Systems & Information Technology Group



"This book is the culmination of five years of partnering between the USC Center for Software Engineering and industrial experts in the field of software cost estimation. While not a replacement for Dr. Boehm's classic Software Engineering Economics, consider it a valuable and timely supplement focusing upon today's software products and processes."-Gary Thomas, Engineering Fellow, Raytheon



"...Barry Boehm's team-produced book is not simply about cost estimation, but a comprehensive and state-of-the-art view of the software engineering process. A great strength of the new book is Chapter 3, which presents detailed application examples. In the first example, Boehm revisits the Transaction Process System case study from the '81 Software Engineering Economics book and, while applying the new COCOMO II model, gives a practical, concise view of the last 20 years' progress in software engineering methodology. Another example, the Airborne Radar System design, demonstrates that the methods and tools taught are highly applicable to and useful in designing large, complex, real-time embedded systems as well."-Dr. Peter Hantos, Principal Scientist, Xerox Corporation



"Barry Boehm and his colleagues address the wide range of modern software development practices in their COCOMO II family of estimation models described in this book. The focus is primarily on estimating size, effort, and schedule. A quality model has also been included. This book is a 'must have' for every software estimator and cost analyst. Managers and instructors will also find it interesting and useful."-Richard D. Stutzke, Vice President, Science Applications International Corp
