Estimating Using Analogy1011401Estimating Using AnalogyAnalogy-based estimation is another technique for early lifecycle macro-estimation. Analogy-based estimation involves selecting one or two completed projects that closely match the characteristics of the target project. The chosen project(s), or analog(s), are then used as the base for your new estimate. Tools are available to search your chosen project history database for a suitable analog.For example, “Angel” (ANaloGy softwarE tooL). Refer to http://dec.bournemouth.ac.uk/ESERG/ANGEL/ESCOM96.html.
