COOLSoft was designed to give software developers an easy to use, predictive software
development cost model. Attributes can be entered to describe the development effort by
hardware, personnel and software.
COOLSoft utilizes a hybrid approach of intermediate and detailed versions of the
Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO). This allows for the reuse of existing code, development
of new code, the purchase and integration of third party code, and hardware integration.
The output is then displayed as man-months of programming effort, calendar schedule,
support costs and hardware costs.
Data setup can be broken into seven attribute sections: software/ overhead, product
shipments, project, computer, product, personnel and hardware. Specifications for software
are broken down by the development areas of: operating system, utilities and windowing
system, I/O and machine interface, control software, man machine interface, supervisory
control, communications, process development language, process development and
integration. These section titles are user definable to meet the requirements of the software
COOLSoft is a must have for every engineering and marketing organization that deals
with software development issues. The model comes with an easy, ready to use installer for
Windows XP operating systems. The software comes with detailed documentation on the operation and
selection of default values.
