CIPS Members receive 20% off the International Software Benchmarking Standards Group's (ISBSG) Comparative Estimating Tool, which is ideal for early project lifecycle estimation or for basic project benchmarking.
The ISBSG Comparative Estimating Tool is an easy-to-use MS Excel based tool that is used to generate estimates of software project effort, delivery rate, duration and speed of delivery. These estimates are determined from the averages of project delivery rates and speed of delivery for a selection of projects taken from the ISBSG repository that are deemed to be similar to the project for which the estimate is required.
Download the free User Guide which includes:
- a description of the estimating process implemented by the tool, and
- details on how to use the tool most effectively.
After you enter the attributes of your proposed project, the tool selects similar projects from the ISBSG industry data, to provide a range of estimates: "Optimistic," "Likely" and "Conservative" for project effort, delivery rate, duration and speed of delivery.
If you enter the attributes of your completed project, the tool will provide a range of values from the ISBSG data for software project effort, delivery rate, duration and speed of delivery. You can then compare these to the performance of your project.
This is an MS Excel based tool. The values that it produces are determined from the averages of project delivery rates and speed of delivery from a selection of similar projects in the ISBSG repository of over 5,000 projects.
This tool filters the ISBSG data to ensure a comparison of "apples with apples." It then allows the user to specify up to eleven project attributes to further refine the choice of projects that can be compared to your project.
