Abstract

This study discusses improving the prediction of timeliness and cost of software development using the Constructive Cost Model II (COCOMO II) method and the application of Fuzzy Logic. And aims to obtain accurate time and cost prediction estimates on software development projects to obtain maximum cost results for a software development project. This study utilizes an adaptive fuzzy logic model to improve the timeliness of software development and cost estimates. Using the advantages of fuzzy set logic and producing accurate software attributes to increase the prediction of the time and price of software development. The fuzzy model uses the Two-D Gaussian Membership Function (2-D GMF) to make the software attributes more detailed in terms of the range of values. In COCOMO I, NASA98 data set; and four data projects from software companies in Indonesia were used to evaluate the proposed Fuzzy Logic COCOMO II, commonly known as FL-COCOMO II. Using the Mean of Magnitude of Relative Error (MMRE) and the Pred evaluation technique, the results showed that FL-COCOMO II produced less MMRE than COCOMO I, and the Pred value (25%) in Fuzzy-COCOMO II was higher than COCOMO I. In addition, FL-COCOMO II showed an 8.03% increase in prediction accuracy using MMRE compared to the original COCOMO. Using the advantages of Fuzzy Logic, such as accurate predictions, adaptation, and understanding can improve the accuracy of the timeliness and cost estimates of the software.
