###### Question 17586 – NTA UGC NET Dec 2023 Paper-2
June 3, 2024

A software company needs to develop a project that is estimated as 1000 function points and is planning to use JAVA as the programming language whose approximate lines of code per function point is accepted as 50. Considering a = 1.4 as multiplicative factor, b = 1.0 as exponential factor for the basic COCOMO effort equation and c = 3.0 as multiplicative factor, d = 0.33 as exponential factor for the basic COCOMO duration equation, approximately how long does the project take to complete ?

Question 326 Explanation:
Given data,
— lines of code(LOC)= 50,000 (or 50K)
— Multiplicative value ‘a’=1.4
— Exponential ‘b’=1.0
— Basic COCOMO formula= a*(LOC in K)b
— Multiplicative value ‘c’=3.0
— Exponential ‘d’=0.33
— Development=c*(basic COCOMO result)d
Step-1: Basic COCOMO formula= a*(LOC in K)b
= 1.4*(50)1.0
= 70
Step-2: Development= c*(basic COCOMO result)d
= 3(70)0.33
= 12.18 months
11.2 months
12.2 months
13.2 months
10.2 months
