Abstract:

From a management perspective, it is essential that software estimates used in a TSP launch are as accurate as possible. Significant growth due to estimation inaccuracy can wreak havoc on a team attempting to stay within cost and schedule while executing its established plan. This article discusses how a software team that uses both proxy-based and size-based estimates is able to accurately plan, launch, and execute on schedule.
