演讲简介:

Estimation maturity processes on average are still quite low. Large sums of money continue to be wasted because projects were not estimated professionally, resulting in cost and schedule overruns. One of the issues across all of industry is the fact that the software cost estimator is often not a recognized profession. In many organizations, estimates are based on experience and opinions of biased human experts, instead of being based upon relevant historical data and parametric models. Nesma and ICEAA (International Cost Estimation and Analysis Association) are working together to create a training curriculum and certification for ‘Software Cost Estimator’, a professional role for estimating software related activities and products.

In cooperation with a number of supporting organizations and professionals in the industry, Nesma and ICEAA have been working together to develop a Software Cost Estimation Body of Knowledge (sCEBoK). In line with the training and certification programs ICEAA already has for cost estimation, the goal is to develop a training and certification program specifically for the software cost estimator. The plan is to have the first professional software cost estimators certified next year at the ICEAA conference in May 2019 in Tampa, FL and at the IWSM in November, 2019 in Haarlem, the Netherlands.

The presentation will be about the reasons why so many software projects fail, the trends in the industry regarding software cost estimation and the way the sCEBoK will help the industry improve, resulting in less schedule and cost overruns and improved software quality.
