Abstract

This research paper adapts intelligent water drops (IWD) algorithm to solve the discrete time- cost-quality trade-off problem (DTCQTP) in software projects which is never solved before by this algorithm. Project manager's goal is getting an optimal allocation of time, cost and quality of each task/activity in the software project such that total time and cost of the project is minimized while project quality is maximized. To achieve this goal, IWD algorithm decides the preferred modes of performing tasks where task quality is expressed quantitatively in terms of defects. An example is given at the end to show the trade-off analysis between project's cost, time and quality.
