In the software development process, effort estimation is essential and a critical phase for the development team in order to ensure that development tasks will be delivered within the planned time. This paper presents a confirmatory case study in an IT company, which examined its current estimation techniques and its process in the context of mobile app development in the Agile process. Moreover, the study provides, and has validated, a proposed estimation technique, namely Pair-estimation, in order to enhance the accuracy of the existing technique. This study, in addition, presents the effectiveness of estimation factors/predictors in supporting the development team to manage, estimate and create subtasks for their user stories.

Abstract

In the software development process, effort estimation is essential and a critical phase for the development team in order to ensure that development tasks will be delivered within the planned time. This paper presents a confirmatory case study in an IT company, which examined its current estimation techniques and its process in the context of mobile app development in the Agile process. Moreover, the study provides, and has validated, a proposed estimation technique, namely Pair-estimation, in order to enhance the accuracy of the existing technique. This study, in addition, presents the effectiveness of estimation factors/predictors in supporting the development team to manage, estimate and create subtasks for their user stories.
