Estimate seems way too high?

Ohloh scans all files at any given code location to calculate the cost estimate.

Ohloh lets you exclude files and direc-tories from this calculation on the Code Locations page. You can get a more realistic estimate by excluding:

  • External dependencies or libraries
  • Non-code files

About Cost Estimates

  • Software cost estimation is tricky business even when all the variables are known -- knowledge which we certainly don't have.
  • We calculate the estimated cost of the project using the Basic COCOMO model.
  • For those familiar with the details, we are using coeffcients a=2.4 and b=1.05.
  • Please note that COCOMO was created to model large institutional projects, which often don't compare well with distributed open-source projects.
  • COCOMO is meant to include the design, specification drafting, reviewing and management overhead that goes along with producing quality software.
  • This model seems to be most accurate with mature, large projects. Young projects with little activity are typically overvalued.
