Abstract: Despite the lucrative worldwide software market, little pricing guidance is available in the literature to assist the software marketers. This paper attempts to create models for pricing software using both statistical and Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques. All approaches utilise the OR/MS Today's 2004 Decision Analysis Software Survey data. The paper concludes that the models produced using AI techniques, with 41 attributes each, show the most promise. The model-building approaches developed can be applied in analysing the software prices world-wide. Software designers and software purchasing managers will be able to evaluate the pricing decisions based upon the significant factors identified.
