Estimating And Complexity
Estimating is the bête noire of software development: simple to conceptualise, but a mine-field for the unwary. There are multiple levels of problems involved with estimating: technical, theoretical, political, social, economic, which we will touch on in our tour.
This series starts out by categorising several different types of estimation problems, and how the structure of the problem itself affects the approach you must take to estimates. They are:
Next, we take a look at how complexity affects the estimation process.
Finally, we’ll look at some of the political and economic aspects of making estimates.
Part of the 'Estimating' Risk-First Series, in which we look at straightforward extrapolation.
Part of the 'Estimating' Risk-First Series, where we look at exponential distributions in estimates.
Part of the 'Estimating' Risk-First Series, where we look at estimates with dependent, connected parts.
Part of the 'Estimating' Risk-First Series, where we look at estimating with uncertain boundaries.
