Abstract

In current scenario of software industries, Software effort estimation is very important task for software manager for successful completion of the project. Prediction is always challenging task and in recent days effort estimation take many researcher’s attention. Prediction with more accuracy is also an important for prediction models. We use Feed-Forward Neural Network for software development effort estimation. In this paper we have shown that, Feed-Forward Neural Network gives much better results than other prediction models. The simulated results shows that, simple Neural network model predict software development effort more accurately.
