Before starting software projects proper cost estimation for accurate project planning and staffing is required. The project requirements, which are normally not well defined in the early stage of a project, need to be considered carefully for a comprehensive calculation. In order to discuss and understand the project requirements, Mock-Ups or Prototypes are often used, as they provide the possibility of analyzing the potential customer's requirements. Because they show the way the software
