Practice Standard for Project Estimating
Effective project management requires the use of consistent and repeatable processes and approaches to manage the constraints of scope, time, cost and quality. The Practice Standard for Project Estimating guides you to achieve a sound estimating discipline for your project.
The standard describes the stages of project estimating. It covers resources, durations, and costs, and explains the concept of progressive elaboration — continuously refining and improving a plan as a project evolves.
