The purpose of this case study is to give you experience performing a software cost estimate.
You will be provided with the requirements for a small, new software application. You will also be provided with a file

Analytics worksheet which contains your accounting work to justify the function point count.
No graph is necessary.
Prepare a standard PowerPoint presentation of your work to both derive the cost estimate and
justify your cost estimate. Your audience is the CIO who is very knowledgeable about software
