Abstract With the growth of technology, the requirement for customized software to support business increases and the experts on software development also increases. The more Software Developers means the more competition in Software Development. Software metric for effort estimation is a strategy to use metrics related to effort estimation in software development becomes necessary to determine the effort required to develop the system and hence determine pricing (in the case of software house). Several methods exist to estimate effort. This research discusses the Use Case Point Method using a Student Desk Portal as the study case. The effort calculated based on Use Case method may differ from the actual case. In this paper, the differences are analyzed, and an adjustment factor is constructed to resolve the differences between the effort estimated by use case point and the actual effort placed in the actual software development. A new criterion is introduced by using data from the actual software development, be used as further adjustment to the effort obtained by using Use Case Point method. This new criteria, the simplicity of project is added to be a part of the environment factor. The result is positive, the effort calculated by Use Case Point for three different application is in accordance with the actual result.
