Current time-sensitive cost models suggest a significant impact on project effort if elapsed time compression or expansion is implemented. This paper reports an empirical study into the applicability of these models in the management information systems environment. It is found that elapsed time variation does not consistently affect project effort. This result is analyzed in terms of the theory supporting such a relationship, and an alternate relationship is suggested.
