Simple process changes can lead to more realistic software development effort estimates. Seven easy-to-implement guidelines, based on industrial experience and empirical studies, apply the latest findings for judgment-based estimation of software project effort. Taken together, the guidelines here don?t provide a complete estimation process or discuss all relevant variables. Rather, they supplement existing methods by supporting the expert judgment process with some useful, easily implemented practices.
