Part 67: Bottom-Up Estimating
(Project Schedule Management: Estimate Activity Durations)
(Project Cost Management: Estimate Costs)
(Project Resource Management: Estimate Activity Resources)

  • In Bottom-Up Estimating, can estimate the cost and duration of the project
    • We cut the project into many small pieces
    • We estimate each piece individually
    • Then we add them all up to get the total estimate
  • When you can’t estimate an activity, it should be decomposed into more detail
  • Each activity may have dependencies that affect resources, and these dependencies should be documented
