Abstract : A variety of Software Sizing approaches have been conjectured in the literature. While many of these approaches have been used for Software Cost Estimation, none were specifically designed for Software Costing. This paper reviews current methods of Software Sizing to determine their suitability for Software Cost Estimation. The approach differs from previous approaches in that it is based on a framework of evaluation criteria including Measurement Theoretic as well as practical considerations.
