ABSTRACT

        The cost estimation tool uses the COCOMO model.   It  produces
manpower  and  schedule  estimates.  The project scheduler is based on
SIMPERT which is a Monte Carlo simulation and review technique.  It is
useful  in  assessing  the effects of requirement changes and schedule
delays, and in risk analysis.  It produces critical path and schedule,
the  probability  of completing on schedule, and Gantt chart graphics.
The Input File generator allows the user  to  build  input  files  for
COCOMO or SIMPERT, and then to modify such files.
