  abstract =     "Statistical regression and neural networks have
                 frequently been used to estimate the development effort
                 of both short and large software projects. In this
                 paper, a genetic programming technique is used with the
                 goal of estimating the effort required in the
                 development of short-scale projects. Results obtained
                 are compared with those generated using the first two
                 techniques. A sample of 132 short-scale projects
                 developed by 40 programmers was used for generating the
                 three models, whereas another sample of 77 projects
                 developed by 24 programmers was used for validating
                 those three models. Accuracy results from the model
                 obtained with genetic programming suggest that it could
                 be used to estimate software development effort of
                 short-scale projects when these projects are developed
                 in a disciplined manner within a development controlled
