Project management is a systematic method of defining and achieving targets with optimized use of resources such as time,money, manpower, material, energy, and space. It is an application of knowledge, skills, resources, and techniques to meetproject requirements. Project management involves various activities, which are as follows:Work planningResource estimationOrganizing the work Acquiring recourses such as manpower, material, energy, and spaceRisk assessmentTask assigningControlling the project executionReporting the progressDirecting the activitiesAnalyzing the results

 The Constructive Cost Model (COCOMO) is an algorithmic software cost estimation model developed by Barry Boehm. Themodel uses a basic regression formula, with parameters that are derived from historical project data and current projectcharacteristics.COCOMO was first published in 1981 Barry W. Boehm's Book Software engineering economics[1] as a model for estimatingeffort, cost, and schedule for software projects. It drew on a study of 63 projects at TRW Aerospace where Barry Boehm wasDirector of Software Research and Technology in 1981. The study examined projects ranging in size from 2,000 to 100,000lines of code, and programming languages ranging from assembly to PL/I. These projects were based on the waterfall model of software development which was the prevalent software development process in 1981.References to this model typically call it COCOMO 81. In 1997 COCOMO II was developed and finally published in 2000 inthe book Software Cost Estimation with COCOMO II[2]. COCOMO II is the successor of COCOMO 81 and is better suited forestimating modern software development projects. It provides more support for modern software development processes and anupdated project database. The need for the new model came as software development technology moved from mainframe andovernight batch processing to desktop development, code reusability and the use of off-the-shelf software components. Thisarticle refers to COCOMO 81.COCOMO consists of a hierarchy of three increasingly detailed and accurate forms. The first level, Basic COCOMO is goodfor quick, early, rough order of magnitude estimates of software costs, but its accuracy is limited due to its lack of factors toaccount for difference in project attributes (Cost Drivers). Intermediate COCOMO takes these Cost Drivers into account andDetailed COCOMO additionally accounts for the influence of individual project phases.
