Controlling Efforts Estimation of IT Projects TrainingEfforts estimation for IT projects is the process of predicting the most realistic ammount of effort required to carry out an IT project, typically to develop or maintain a software. The estimation is based on incomplete, uncertain and/or noisy input. Effort estimates may be used as input to project plans, iteration plans, budgets, investment analyses, pricing processes and bidding rounds. This training presents an overview of the most common techniques which are all connected to the Function Point Method which serves as a basis for most of these techniques.
