EFIC : Estimation consensuelle de l’effort en agilité basée sur la logique floue intuitionniste

Commonly, the effort estimation of the agile project features must be carried out in a consensual way between the team members. However, this will hardly be possible when a conflict arises between the estimators. Their judgment could also be threatened by uncertainty or lack of precision when describing features. To overcome these problems, we propose in this paper a consensual method of expert judgment based on intuitionistic fuzzy logic. The method has been tested on an agile reference project. Appreciable results were obtained for inexperienced estimators and at the first iterations, with a null bias towards the overestimation or the underestimation of the project features in the subsequent iterations.
