# Software Equation Calculator

The software equation is a model used for software project estimation with multiple variables based on assumptions of a specific distribution of effort throughout all the phases of a software development. This software equation calculator helps you to estimate the effort needed for the project. Input the values of lines of code estimate for the project, special skills factor, productivity parameter and time length of a project, the software equation calculator will update you the estimation.

#### Formula:

E= ( (Loc × B^{(1 / 3)})/P )^{3} × (1 / t^{4})
**Where,**
LOC = Lines of Code Estimate for the Project
B = Special Skills Factor
P = Productivity Parameter
t = Time Length of Project
E = Project Effort Measured in Person-Months or Person-Years
The software equation calculator will be a very useful one for the project managers of both the top level and start-up level software companies to estimate their project efforts for the software project.
