Background and Objectives: Nowadays, data mining is one of the most significant issues. One field of data mining is a mixture of computer science and statistics which is considerably limited due to increase in digital data and growth of computational power of computers. One of the domains of data mining is the software cost estimation category.
Methods: In this article, classifying techniques of learning algorithm of machine and COCOMO model as the most common estimation model of software costs are presented. Then, the analysis method of principal component approach is presented.
Results: This article presents a suitable method to improve the performance of the software cost estimation. Moreover, the basic data set is decreased and is turned into a new collection by using this method. Among the features, the best are extracted. The algorithms of several classifications are assessed by applying this method. Finally, the evidence for accuracy of our claims in terms of increase in estimation accuracy of software costs is presented.
Conclusion:. The results proved that the suggested method could have significant influence on models of decision tree, naïve Bayes and nearest neighborhood by decreasing dimension of input data and turning it into data.

Main Subjects


Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering Innovations (JECEI) welcomes letters to the editor for the post-publication discussions and corrections which allows debate post publication on its site, through the Letters to Editor. Letters pertaining to manuscript published in JECEI should be sent to the editorial office of JECEI within three months of either online publication or before printed publication, except for critiques of original research. Following points are to be considering before sending the letters (comments) to the editor.

[1] Letters that include statements of statistics, facts, research, or theories should include appropriate references, although more than three are discouraged.

[2] Letters that are personal attacks on an author rather than thoughtful criticism of the author’s ideas will not be considered for publication.

[3] Letters can be no more than 300 words in length.

[4] Letter writers should include a statement at the beginning of the letter stating that it is being submitted either for publication or not.

[5] Anonymous letters will not be considered.

[6] Letter writers must include their city and state of residence or work.

[7] Letters will be edited for clarity and length.
