4. Past Usage: This data was used for:
Boetticher, G., Lokhandwala, N., James C. Helm, Understanding the Human
Estimator, Second International Predictive Models in Software Engineering
(PROMISE) Workshop co-located at the 22nd IEEE International Conference on
Software Maintenance, Philadelphia, PA, September, 2006. More information is
available at http://nas.cl.uh.edu/boetticher/research.html
Since PROMISE 2006, the data set expanded by about 50 percent. The additional
tuples allowed us to divide the data into 3 major categories. Those who severely
underestimate (first 25 tuples). Those who accurately estimate (next 25 tuples).
And those who severely overestimate (last 25 tuples). The PROMISE 2007 experiments
compare the underestimators with the accurate estimators and the overestimators with
the accurate estimators.
5. Number of Instances: 75
6. Number of Attributes: 14 independent variables and 1 dependent variable
7. Attribute Information:
Numeric Degree: This attribute refers to the level of education of the participant.
2=High School, 3=Bachelors, 4=Masters,5=Ph.D.
TechUGCourses: This refers to the number of technical undergraduate courses that
the participant has taken.
TechGCourses: This refers to the number of technical graduate courses that
the participant has taken.
MgmtUGCourses: This refers to the number of management undergraduate courses that
the participant has taken.
MgmtGCourses: This refers to the number of management graduate courses that
the participant has taken.
Total Workshops: This refers to the total number of workshops that
the participant has attended.
Total Conferences: This refers to the total number of conferences that
the participant has attended.
TotalLangExp: This refers to the total number of languages and experience in those
languages that the participant has.
Hardware Proj Mgmt Exp: This corresponds to the total amount of time that the
respondant has been estimating hardware projects.
Software Proj Mgmt Exp: This corresponds to the total amount of time that the
respondant has been estimating software projects.
No Of Hardware Proj Estimated: This refers to the total number of hardware projects
that the participant has estimated.
No Of Software Proj Estimated: This refers to the total number of software projects
that the participant has estimated.
Domain Exp: The domain experience refers to how much experience the participant has
in the oil and gas industry.
Procurement Industry Exp: The procurement industry experience refers to the amount
of time, in years, that the participant has regarding
procurement.
ABS((TotalEstimates-TotalActual)/TotalActual): This is the class variable. It
represents the overall relative error for the participant's
estimates.
