The citations game: Cone of Uncertainty
Rubric: Software Engineering : Factual Claims : Cone of Uncertainty : Empirical Validation
The Wikipedia page on "Cone of Uncertainty" lists two "empirical validations" of Boehm's initial work. I didn't chase these down for Leprechauns. They are:
- "Later work by Boehm and his colleagues at USC applied data from a set of software projects from the U.S. Air Force and other sources to validate the model;"
- "The basic model was further validated based on work at NASA's Software Engineering Lab (NASA 1990 p. 3-2)."
