    "Estimation with Use Cases: A Simple and Effective Approach to
    Estimating Software Projects" by Jon Porter.


    The primary goal of this publication is to provide a simple method of
    forming useful estimates of time and effort in the early phases of
    object oriented software projects. The estimation methodology presented
    here is based on Use Case Point Analysis, a derivative of Function
    Point Analysis. This publication includes a point-by-point process on
    how to perform estimation and requires no special knowledge beyond this
    writing to implement. The author has been successfully using this
    method for 8 years and has estimated over 200 projects. What is most
    remarkable is that a useful project estimate can be made in about an
    hour using relevant high-level use cases.
