This product can be used on any type of project during the phases of Planning and Requirements Definition, Product Design, Detailed Design, Coding and Unit Testing, Integration and Testing, Implementation, Operation and Maintenance. Is used for estimating software costs.
The project manager will get a prediction of personnel, the efforts of the development team, costs and project duration to perform all activities and build all products associated with a project.
The project manager wants to create a document detailing precisely the estimation of the project being developed. Personnel involved in this task must be able to identify what type of project is about and what is the environment or restrictions in which it is performed. It will also be able to identify and give value to product attributes, computer, personal, and the project in general.
- Characteristics of organizations: This pattern can be used in existing projects in any company.
- Type of system to be developed: This product can be used in projects in which user requirements are changing.
- Type of customer: It must exist or be achieved, the target business area of development gets involved in the achievement.
- Heuristics for use: If is needed a urgent application or dispose of some of its functionality.
- To avoid errors when estimating must always be considered first the estimation model and then the development mode is selected.
- The effort is the first thing that must be calculated and is measured in PM (person months).
- Definition of software requirements
- Background information on Logic Programming and Software Engineering I
- Knowledge in Databases Design
- Getting used to using a particular paradigm
