Candidate Estimation and Measurement
Challenges for Next-Generation Processes
• Emergent requirements
– Example: Virtual global collaboration support systems
– Need to manage early concurrent engineering
• Rapid change
– In competitive threats, technology, organizations,
environment
• Net-centric systems of systems
– Incomplete visibility and control of elements
• Model-driven, service-oriented, Brownfield systems
– New phenomenology, counting rules
• Always-on, never-fail systems
– Need to balance agility and discipline

Challenges (continued)
•
Process changes (new activities, less/more emphasis
on traditional activities, etc.) that impact current
estimation methods
•
•
•
•
•
Historical data
Engineering judgment
Parametric models
– Size drivers
– Cost factors
Shifts in key work products/boundary objects used to
communicate between teams and integrate
engineering specialties
What is most important to measure/monitor for
program success in next generation processes
