Here’s the latest installment in my continuing saga to estimate effort with 90% confidence intervals. Here’s the plot:
In this case, my estimate of the expected time to completion was fairly close to the actual time. The upper end of the 90% confidence interval is extremely high, largely because there was some work that I considered optional to complete the feature that decided to put off to some future data.
Here’s the plot of the error:
It takes a non-trivial amount of mental efforts to do these estimates each day. I may stop doing these soon.
