The strengths and weaknesses of existing size estimation techniques are discussed. The nature of software size estimation is considered. The proposed method takes advantage of a characteristic of object-oriented systems, the natural correspondence between specification and implementation, in order to enable users to come up with better size estimates at early stages of the software development cycle. Through a statistical approach the method also provides a confidence interval for the derived size estimates. The relation between the presented software sizing model and project cost estimation is also considered
