Software effort models and estimates help project managers allocate resources, control costs, and schedule and improve current practices, leading to projects that are finished on time and within budget. In the context of Web development and maintenance, these issues are also crucial, and very challenging, given that Web projects have short schedules and a highly fluidic scope. Therefore, this chapter presents a case study where a real effort prediction model based on data from completed industrial Web projects is constructed step by step using a statistical technique called regression analysis.
