Extended abstract:
Since 1968 - the year of the Garmisch conference that originated the "software crisis" word - our industry has been struggling with predictability and estimation. We all know of the horror stories of software project run amok with unbelievable cost and time overruns. Can we do it better? Can we estimate better software projects?
In this talk we will review some of the advances in software estimation by such luminaries as Barry Boehm, Caper Jones, Steve McConnel and others and present a different way to look at software projects and estimation specifically.
We'll review data from several projects to present an approach that can deliver 4% deviations in schedules and can deliver projects predictably. But there is a catch, we will be looking at something totally different. Bring an open mind...
