Category: Use Cases
PRICE® ESTIMATION SYSTEMS INTEGRATION METHODOLOGY HELPING TO IMPROVE GOVERNMENT’S SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT COST MODELS–
Enable more timely and affordable estimates of software-intensive programs with faster, data-driven, defensible estimates of software development costs. Eliminate risk-based contingencies and other arbitrary growth factors that lead to overstating estimates. Decrease cycle time to develop estimates.
A collaborative implementation of the PRICE® Estimation Systems Integration (ESI) methodology using the PRICE® TruePlanning® Cost Estimation Framework. PRICE® experts teamed with SMEs from government and the contracting community to create a repeatable process of collecting and using data on existing software development to calculate credible and defendable estimates for future projects.
