Abstract : This paper describes a two-phase approach to Software Costing which has been proposed by the iMAPS Software Costing Research team. The proposed approach consists of obtaining an initial, rough, estimate of the Cost of the system during the first phase. During the second phase the estimate is refined throughout the development of the system as more information becomes available.
