Software Estimation Best Practices, Tools & Techniques covers all facets of software estimation. It provides a detailed explanation of the various methods for estimating software size, development effort, cost, and schedule, including a comprehensive explanation of test effort estimation. This unique desk reference, for the novice to expert, also offers direction on which methods are most appropriate for each of the different software project types commonly executed and criteria for selecting software estimation tools.
Key Features
– Presents software estimation best practices and shows how to avoid common pitfalls
– Demonstrates a practical methodology with templates for using Delphi estimation and analogy-based estimation for software projects
– Introduces a new method referred to as software size units for measuring software size that does not make use of the untenable concept of complexity for adjusting software size
– Provides useful methods for converting software size to effort, deriving true productivity, and analyzing variances between actual and estimated values as a tool for productivity improvement
– WAV offers a free downloadable test effort estimation tool (TPPal), a software size unit estimation tool (SSUPal), and a 180-day demo for a comprehensive estimation tool known as EstimatorPal available from the Web Added Value Download Resource Center at jrosspub.com
