Abstract: Analogy estimation is a well known approach for software effort estimation. The underlying assumption of this approach is the more similar the software project description attributes are, the more similar the software project effort is. One of the difficult activities in analogy estimation is how to derive a new estimate from retrieved solutions. Using retrieved solutions without adjustment to considered problem environment is not often sufficient. Thus, they need some adjustment to minimize variation between current case and retrieved cases. The main objective of the present paper is to investigate the applicability of fuzzy logic based software projects similarity measure to adjust analogy estimation and derive a new estimate. We proposed adaptation techniques which take into account the similarity between two software projects in terms of each feature. In earlier work, a similarity measure between software projects based on fuzzy C-means has been proposed and validated theoreticall y against some well known axioms such as: Normality, Symmetry, transitivity, etc. This similarity measure will be guided towards deriving a new estimate.
