Evita Coelho, Anirban Basu . Effort Estimation in Agile Software Development using Story Points. International Journal of Applied Information Systems. 3, 7 ( August 2012), 7-10. DOI=10.5120/ijais12-450574
Agile software development has been gaining popularity and replacing the traditional methods of developing software. However, estimating the size and effort in Agile Software development still remains a challenge. This paper gives an overview of the different size estimation methods traditionally used and discusses in details the method based on Story Points, which is at present the most widely used estimation technique in Agile Software Development. The paper describes the steps followed in Story Point based method and highlights the area which needs to be looked into further.
