Hi Jo Ann,
As I have written elsewhere I am immediately put on guard whenever I see the phrase system of systems! Unfortunately as I progressed through your material I found little to appease my worries.
Why is this "system of systems" rather than just "system"? and on a lighter note why COSOSIMO rather than COSOSEMO with the E standing for Engineering rather than the I for Integration?
Having said this, the parameters that you have defined seem to be sound as parameters to a cost model for the engineering of systems. Perhaps I am missing something (this is not an area that I am overly familiar with - although I met with COCOMO many years ago) so it is possible that you can convince me that the term is not being misused.
