Full Day Workshop: Thursday, November 3, 2005, 8:00am – 5:00pm SAIC, Science Drive, Orlando, Florida Registration/Sign-In Begins at 7:30am Building on the synergy between Systems Engineering and Software Engineering, the Center for Software Engineering (CSE) at the University of Southern California (USC), has been leading an effort to develop a parametric model to estimate Systems Engineering costs. The goal of this model, called COSYSMO (Constructive Systems Engineering Cost Model), is to more accurately estimate the time and effort associated with performing the system engineering tasks defined by EIA/ANSI 632 through the system life cycle phases in ISO/IEC This workshop outlines the work accomplished over the past four years by USC, in collaboration with its Corporate Affiliates and the INCOSE Measurement Working Group, to develop the an industry baseline of COSYSMO. The workshop is divided into five parts: Description of the model development methodology; Explanation of its size and cost drivers; Presentation of results from round 3 of the Delphi survey; Explanation of the industry baseline calibration*; Description on what organizations can do to locally calibrate the model; Demonstration of the COSYSMO tool; and Discussion of extensions and improvements to the model *Data for the industry calibration of the model has been provided by: BAE Systems, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and SAIC.
