Thus, a historical project database must be built. Several issues have come up when discussing the feasibility of building such a project database. One challenging issue is which projects should be involved in the database and how to classify these projects? Another issue is which project features should be measured and how to use these features for further analogy-based effort estimation. The position paper investigates these issues and proposes solutions for discussions. 1
