What is PAD estimate?

A pad is an extra time and cost added to an estimate because the estimator does not have enough information. The potential need for time and cost arises when the project has many unknowns and information is not available to clarify the unknowns. This can be addressed with reserves through the risk management process.

How do you estimate software development tasks?

A project’s duration = overall task time estimation (E) + E*risk buffer + E*time eaters. So, if a project’s overall task time estimation is 7,200 hours, the total project duration will be: 7,200 + 7,200*0.25 + 7,200*0.20 = 10,440 hours.

What is phase estimating and when is it used?
