Effort Measures
Effort Measures

By effort in the software estimation process, we mean the amount of person-effort, or labor, that will be needed to carry out a task. It can be measured in any units, as long as the unit is kept consistent. On the other hand, the de facto standard is staff-hours (person-hours),

Estimating Duration and Cost - Summary
Estimating Duration and Cost - Summary

Estimating product size, staff effort, project schedule, and cost are inextricably entwined during the project planning process, which takes place for the first time near the beginning of the project life cycle and many times thereafter, generally at the end of each major phase.

Identifying and Documenting the Project Roles and Skills Needed
Identifying and Documenting the Project Roles and Skills Needed

The project manager has to make a decision who does what and who decides what on the project. Deciding who does what is an exercise in career planning, balancing learning opportunities against accomplishing work on time and managing egos. The particular skills required for

Assigning Responsibilities to Individuals
Assigning Responsibilities to Individuals

As project manager, your role in staff acquisition and assignment is to determine the specific time, cost, and resource commitments required to complete the project. This must be done for every activity. Some of these cannot be completed until after more planning has occurred,

Establishing Reporting Relationships
Establishing Reporting Relationships

When the staffing management plan has been started and assignment of people to roles has been done, the project manager can then define the reporting relationships expected to execute the project's activities. Organizations get depicted for a software development project in

Developing the Software Requirements Specification
Developing the Software Requirements Specification

Getting the requirements correct is perhaps the major part of a software development project. Once a software development team begins to collect the project requirements, it is critical that the project have a consistent format for maintaining and presenting them. This section

Determining Project Risks
Determining Project Risks

Software risk management is the formal process in which risk factors are systematically identified, assessed, and mitigated. The determination of the risk in a project, either due to external or internal causes, is a major part of project management. The PMBOK defines

What Is Risk Management
What Is Risk Management

Risk management is about understanding the internal and external project influences that can cause project failure. Once the project plan is built, a risk analysis should be carried out. The result of the initial risk analysis is a risk plan that should be reviewed frequently and adjusted

Risk Management Models
Risk Management Models

A number of models of risk management, readily usable by project managers, have been identified by the Project Management and Software Engineering Institutes and through the groundbreaking software engineering work of Barry Boehm.

Project Risk and the SEI
Project Risk and the SEI

The Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute developed a software risk model based on the Shewhart-Deming cycle. The model provides information and feedback, internal and external to the project, on the risk activities, current risks, and emerging risks. Figure
