Our Estimation Methodology is utilized to ensure a consistent “tried-and-tested” approach for estimating software development projects. Using a consistent method for building an estimate improves the accuracy; increases the repeatability of quality; improves consistency across geography, technology, and business domains; and ensures that appropriate backup documentation is provided to confidently support the estimate.
Online’s Estimation Methodology combines industry best practices and experience gathered from over 16 years of software development. The emphasis within the Estimation Methodology is on providing templates, processes, checklists, and best practices that will support the creation of accurate estimates.
The methodology presents a process for creating both bottom-up and top-down estimates. The underlying principle in the Estimation Methodology is clearly identifying and recording assumptions and risks.
