Software Estimating Resources

Herding Cats

This blog page is dedicated to the resources used to estimate software-intensive systems using traditional and agile development methods. The reason for this resource page is the lack of understanding of how to estimate, the urban myths about software estimating, and the fallacies that estimating is not needed, when developing software, in the presence of uncertainty, when spending other peoples money. Estimating Probable System Cost,” Stephen A. December 2010.

Estimating is a Learned Skill

Herding Cats

Estimating is a learned skill, used for any purpose from every-day life to management of projects. When I left for the airport this morning to catch my flight to a customer site I estimated, given the conditions, how much time I need to get to my favorite parking spot at DIA. The same process for estimating is applied to multi-billion dollar projects we work. Here's some materials that provide the tools and processes needed to learn how to estimate. Johnson, STC 2010.

Webinar Recap: Agile Series Part 1 – Understanding & Incorporating Agile Project Management

Lean, we’ll talk about just in time or we think about continuous process improvement. And so if something has never been done before, it’s hard to kind of figure out an estimate. And that way instead of spending a lot more time on requirements, what I can do is go, “All right, we’re going to time box these, we’ll make sure we have our estimates in place, but inherently I can quickly validate the requirements with something that’s much more visual.”
