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.

In our domain of aerospace and defense, we have reference class for cost, schedule, architecture (DODAF), risk and other attributes of every system ever built in the DOD ( CAPE , CADE ) and NASA ( CARDe/Once ). Yet another class #NoEstimates lack of understanding of estimating, reference class forecasting, reference class databases, parametric estimating, estimating tools, and other well established estimating processes in the agile software development world.

DDSTOP The Saga Continues

Herding Cats

40 - Estimation is a Problematic Practice of Companies Doing Dangerous Things. A #Noestimates advocate makes the claim that having a ±10% accuracy for estimates of cost and duration is a dangerous thing. With what appears to be NO understanding of how to estimate, this author ignores the processes used in developing products or services in the presence of uncertainty. Define the probabilistic ranges of the work in a single point estimate manner. All by NOT Estimating?

The Impact of Technology on Project Management: Pre-1950s to the Modern Age

Keyedin

During and after the world wars, activities were beginning to be completed on a larger scale, meaning there was more need for budget, supply and labour management. The algorithm, which schedules a set of project activities, can be adapted to any type of project, including construction, aerospace, defence, software development, product development and engineering. Focus during this time was on the internet and the influence it had on how businesses carried out their work.
