Abstract: Estimating software development cost is vital issue because cost is the major factor of any project. If anyone want the assessment of software estimate cost its seemed to much tough job. Cost estimator used different techniques and methods that not too much efficient. Estimating the cost on the basis of object oriented design approach too much effective. After drawing the basic architecture basis on Classes, Methods, Objects, entities, and their relationship may gives the better result to estimate the cost of software. This paper discusses the strengths and weaknesses of existing size estimation techniques, considers the nature of software cost estimation, and presents a software cost estimation model which has the potential for providing more accurate cost estimates than existing methods. 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 cost estimates at early stages of the software development cycle.
