Abstract: Software effort estimation is big and active research area. Software effort estimation is useful for time and efforts required to perform a particular task. But, it is very rare to estimate the effort with high level of reliability. There are various approaches to estimate the software application effort. In the present paper, to estimate the effort for software applications efforts, neutrosophic logic approach is used. Neutrosophic logic is a mathematical model for ambiguity, uncertainty, incompleteness, vagueness, redundancy, contradiction and inconsistency in data. It is the extension to the fuzzy logic. It is capable of handling those errors which are not handled by fuzzy logic like indeterminacy in the data. Neutrosophic logic gives the results very similar to human thinking. The present work concludes that neutrosophic logic optimizes the performance of fuzzy logic while calculating the software efforts.
