At its initiation, however, it was incorrectly estimated to be 42.88 KDSI in size (that is, 33 percent smaller than 64 KDSI).
In the KDSI data (used for COCOMO), Boehm's conversion formula for modified software was used [5].
In addition, a regression was run on the primary input to the COCOMO models, delivered source instructions, or KDSI. The result was an R.sup.2 of 49.4 percent, which is not as good a fit as any of the COCOMO models.
The results were the following: Actual man-months = 54.1 + 0.084 (SLIM) (10.17) R.sup.2 / 92.8% Actual man-months = 11.4 + 0.195 (COCOMO-Basic) (10.82) 93.6% Actual man-months = 51 + 0.17 (COCOMO-Intermediate) (12.24) 94.9% Actual man-months = 40.3 + 0.181 (COCOMO-Detailed) (11.62) 94.4% Actual man-months = -203 + 0.451 (Function Points) (4.63) 71.8% Actual man-months = -175 + 0.426 (Function Count) (4.09) 66.2% Actual man-months = -94 + 1.67 (KDSI) (2.90) 44.5% Actual man-months = -102 + 1.68 (KSLOC) (2.83) 43.2%
Only KDSI and KSLOC did slightly worse, and these are not inputs to ESTIMACS.
