Assessment cost of the software component contributes a major part in software cost estimation and it is one of the major cost of the software out of- integration cost i.e. the cost of glue codes, assessment costs and tailoring cost. Many researchers have proposed formulas for evaluating assessment and tailoring costs theoretically. Assessment cost is very often considered to be theoretical cost which involves cost of component selection and composition. According to Moguel Goulao et. al assessment cost for overall component can be measured qualitatively and quantitatively both. He has suggested that qualitative measurement is mostly based on views provided by the experts whereas the quantitative measurement is more subjective and repetitive in nature. Various metrics has been suggested by different authors to quantitatively measure the assessment cost for software components. In this work we applying the metrics on case study of UCRS and developed a tool for evaluating the assessment cost which can be used in calculating the overall cost of the software.
