The Measure that is modeled in the Cone the variable is the Quantitative basis of a control process that establishes the goal for the performance measure. The planned value, the upper and lower control limits, the measures of actual values form a Close Loop Control System - a measurement based feedback process to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the project management processes by [1].

Software Estimating Resources

Herding Cats

So start here to build your academic foundation, that can be put to work to build a foundation of validated experience of making estimates in the presence of uncertainty and protect yourself from fallacious claims that estimates are a waste, not needed, and produce bad resulting in the decision making process for those paying you to produce value.
