Software Estimation

Inaccurate software project estimates are the cause of a lot of waste and increased project risk. Two recurring problems include:

1. The initial estimate is too high, leading to low productivity or missed opportunities.

2. The initial estimate is too low, leading to inefficient resource allocation at the end of the project, budget overruns, and late deliveries.

The estimating processes, techniques, and tools available to help solve these problems require expertise and regular use to deliver benefits. Our Software Estimation services are available to quickly and easily improve your existing estimation practices or to implement a new estimation practice within your organization.

"The DCG team accommodated our needs from day 1. They were able to turn around the preliminary estimate for us very quickly. After a few more tweaks and revisions, we now have estimates to support our funding requests."

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help." 
- Mike Harris, DCG President
