estimation  Estimation Inside-out Software size estimation is one of the most critical and difficult activities in the software planning process. Measuring software size goes a long way toward determining the effort, schedule, and budget required for a project. Learn how misjudging or misunderstanding the scope and size of a project can result in budget and schedule overruns, and failed deliveries that can cause total project failure. Read More...
Paradoxes of Software Estimation

estimation  of Software Estimation Introduction Software development has spawned an independent industry, with organizations offering software development services exclusively. As it is perhaps in the nascent stages, the processes of asking for service, offering a service, and pricing are all somewhat haphazard. Software development falls into the category of the services industry as opposed to the product industry—that is, a service is offered, and not a product. Many parallels can be drawn with similar Read More...
Criteria for Selecting a Software Estimation Tool
A plethora of software estimation tools are available, each claimed to be better than the others, thereby confusing prospective buyers. An effective tool ought

estimation  for Selecting a Software Estimation Tool Software development outsourcing has now become commonplace. So, it has become necessary for the outsourcer and the provider to reach an agreement about the size, development effort, cost, and development schedule of the software product being outsourced. This has caused software estimation to move from hunch-based estimation to the use of mature, research-backed estimation techniques. The process of estimation has also moved from manual estimation using spreadshee Read More...

estimation  Effort Estimation Software testing is carried out primarily to unearth system defects, and to prevent defective products from reaching customers. It’s also carried out to convince customers that a product conforms to and fulfils the agreed-upon specifications and functionality. However, in order to evaluate potential approaches to estimating test efforts, it’s vital to understand what the activity of testing actually consists of. Read More...
Productivity for Software Estimators
Presently, software estimation is considered to be an art rather than a science. At the heart of this perception is the lack of understanding of the concept of

estimation  Concerns with Software Size Estimation The present scenario in the software industry is that there are multiple units of software size measures. These units of measure include function points, use case points (UCP), object points, feature points, Internet points, test points, mark II function point analysis (FPA), lines of code (LOC), etc. There is no accepted way of converting software size from one unit of measure into another. One odd aspect of these measures is that the size of the software is Read More...

Manual adjustments and other infrequent transactions must undergo similar verification. The resource-centric control files give everyone a cohesive picture of all the rules that apply to each type of resource. For example, Read More...
PTC Windchill Version 9 versus Version 10: Is Version 10 the Most Significant Windchill Release in PTC’s History?
The latest iteration of PTC Windchill (v. 10) for product lifecycle management (PLM) has been described as ‘the most significant Windchill release in PTC’s

estimation  is for product cost estimation functionality, for which PTC Windchill 9 offers a lower level of support than the average solution, whereas version 10 fully supports it out of the box. Functionality for change management, design and project collaboration, and computer aided design (CAD) design integration has also been significantly improved in version 10. Core PLM for Process Industries is another module where the new functionality for product cost estimation has a great influence on the overall level of Read More...
Not All Acquisitions Happen: JDA and QRS Part Two: Market Impact
The QRS acquisition by JDA would have eventually brought together two providers of complementary e-commerce products that would help retailers, manufacturers

estimation  entire enterprise, and easier estimation of overall project cost and implementation management through primary relationship (i.e., one throat to choke ). The business opportunity is to move from supply- to demand-driven retailing, via merchandizing, replenishment, pricing, promotions, consumer loyalty schemes, and multi-channel management systems, all working off the single ERP platform. However, the retail vendors'' holy grail has become working with information from heterogeneous sources, an order du Read More...
Business Process Simulation Technology from Lanner

estimation  rarely offer a good estimation of the reality, since they do not let you see what happens when exceptions occur. An example of a pharmaceutical company trying to determine the overall efficiency of an equipment by simulating breakdown and repair times shows that failure to include variability and disruptions can generate an overestimation of equipment efficiency by 73 percent. This is because the safest scenario (i.e., where time to breakdown is regular and time to repair is fixed) is also less Read More...

Caution! Will A Traditional ERP System Help You Deliver Projects?
Companies who build specifically for a customer have unique requirements that are often not understood or dealt with well by some ERP vendors, particularly in

estimation  in product definition (i.e., estimation, design, and engineering) before anything can be made or bought. In volume manufacturing the product definition work will be amortised over the items'' life- possibly thousands of items. Whilst overrun here will effect the time-to-market of the product, it has no effect on the lead-time of any one order, and is therefore not planned in the same way. Moreover, the extensive costs of product definition are absorbed into company overhead or product costing, so an Read More...

Some plans to achieve the have-costs goal may try to do so by activating the have-estimated-costs goal, thereby realizing dynamic goal decomposition. 2.3 Goal-Oriented Process Navigation When a business process is executed, an effective goal-oriented BPM solution is able to directly run the goal-oriented models against the standard IT infrastructure, possibly within Read More...
