Effective Test Estimation

Add to calendar

We have experience with testing projects, both large and small. Sometimes our test estimates are accurate—and sometimes they’re not. We often miss deadlines because there are no defined criteria used to create our estimates. Sometimes we miss our schedules due to crunched testing timelines. Shyam Sunder briefly describes the different test estimation techniques including Simple, Medium, Complex; Top Down, Bottom Up; and Test Point Analysis. To assist in better estimating in the future, Shyam has prepared test estimation templates and guidelines, which can significantly help organizations in proper estimation of testing projects. Through his work, effort and schedule variations have significantly improved from ±60 percent to ±2 percent. Shyam explains the test estimation templates in detail and demonstrates how to choose the estimation templates for your organization’s software development process. Learn why effective software test estimation techniques help in tracking and controlling cost/effort overruns significantly.
