Estimation Process Deployment


Level 4 assists with the optimization of all estimation processes, including functional estimation as part of demand management; technical estimates to support resource scheduling and resource constrained scheduling; and on-going change request sizing during the project life.  Our ExcelerPlan product supports single project estimates at all stages of the project life; while our ExcelerStat governance product supports demand management, integrated planning and resource forecasting, and resource scheduling.
