    Abstract

    Traditionally, software measurement literature considers the uncertainty of cost drivers in project estimation as a challenge and treats it as such. This paper develops the position that uncertainty can be seen as an asset. It draws on results of a case study in which we replicated an approach to balancing uncertainties of project context characteristics in requirements-based effort estimation for ERP implementations.
