Unit 8 Assignment

 

Application: Software Project Cost Estimation

Of all the estimates you will make when managing a software project, perhaps the most difficult is estimating cost. Costs vary widely and depend on a multitude of factors. Some of those factors are qualitative, making it difficult to make quantitative estimates.

For this Assignment, apply some of the methods included in the resources that help mitigate the uncertainties of project cost estimation. Refer to the Pennywise National Bank project and perform the following tasks:

·         Just as software projects can be broken down into less complex components, so can project costs. Break down the overall cost of the project into a list of more basic costs

·         List the risks you identified in Unit 3

·         Specify quantitatively how each of these risks can affect the project cost

·         Evaluate methods for addressing these risks

·         Based on this information, estimate the overall cost of the Pennywise National project

Submit your Assignment by Day 7.
