For more accurate project planning and enhanced communication with your stakeholders, create application development time estimates. When you estimate the duration of your project, you clearly state how much time and effort your development team needs to deliver an application that reflects its specific design and required elements.
- In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Overview.
- In the Application profile section, click Manage.
- In the Application profile workspace, click Estimator.
- In the Estimator section, in the Release list, select the release for which you want to calculate the estimate.
- In the Delivery list, select the implementation method
that your development team uses.Non-Agile methodologies increase the estimated effort and duration by 20%.
- In the Number of teams field, specify how many teams can work on the project.
- In the Scrum maturity list, select a value that
describes the customer's experience with scrum projects.Medium maturity increases the estimated effort and duration by 7.5%, and low maturity by 15%.
- In the Staffing model list, select a value that
indicates the level of cooperation between the customer and Pega.In the co-production model, it is assumed that a business architect and two system architects from the customer side join each development team.
- In the Environment list, select the environment on which
you want to deploy the application.Creating a new on-premises environment elongates the estimated effort and duration by 10%.
- In the Organization complexity list, select an option
that indicates how many levels and regulations your organization has.
Organizations with high complexity comply with external regulations and additional validation requirements, such as government organizations and those in the financial, healthcare, and pharmaceutical industries.A high complexity level increases the estimated effort and duration by 20%.
- In the Data import effort list, select an option that
describes the complexity level of the effort required to migrate data from the
legacy system to the new Pega system.A high complexity level increases the estimated effort and duration by 30%, medium by 20%, and low by 10%.
- Click Calculate estimate.
- Optional: To import the estimate to an .xlsx file, in the Application overview workspace header, click .
