    Dear all,

    I read manual about COSMIC, but I have not found formula to convert from CFP to effort (person-month) yet. Can you introduce some document to do it (especially for CFP), or I use COCOMO… to estimate effort from CFP?

    Thank you

    Dear Dinh,

    One way is to consult the ISBSG database, which contains data of hundreds of software projects, including their sizes in CFP and effort.

    However, if you have data of some software projects of your own organization you can make a ‘conversion model’ yourself: download.‎

      At this time not exists a formal way to estimate effort from CFP? I need cover all others factors (environment, risk…) in formal way, and I will change those parameters depend on my company.
