Managing uncertainty in project portfolio cost estimation

Ioannis Stamelos, Lefteris Angelis
2001 Information and Software Technology  
In order to calculate the possible cost of the entire project portfolio, one must combine the single project estimates taking into account the uncertainty involved.  ...  Although typically a software development organisation is involved in more than one project simultaneously, the available tools in the area of software cost estimation deal mostly with single software  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank the anonymous referees for their helpful and constructive comments that helped us in improving the paper.  ...
