CHAPTER 6

Estimation

Once a system is developed, more detailed estimating is required. At the strategic level, macroestimates were used to evaluate the project for approval. As the project moves to requirements analysis and determination of feasibility, more accurate estimates are possible as more detailed planning is conducted. During the planning process, detailed tasks (things to do—deliverables) and milestones (completed project module elements, resulting in a completed, functioning system) are identified. This chapter discusses the planning process, as well as factors important in information system project estimation. Several quantitative methods of software project estimation are explained.
