Detailed COCOMO Model?

Detailed COCOMO incorporates all qualities of the standard version with an assessment of the cost driver?s effect on each method of the software engineering process. The detailed model uses various effort multipliers for each cost driver property. In detailed cocomo, the whole software is differentiated into multiple modules, and then we apply COCOMO in various modules to estimate effort and then sum the effort.

The Six phases of detailed COCOMO are:

  1. Planning and requirements
  2. System structure
  3. Complete structure
  4. Module code and test
  5. Integration and test
  6. Cost Constructive model

The effort is determined as a function of program estimate, and a set of cost drivers are given according to every phase of the software lifecycle.
