factored estimate

de: Faktormethode

Several factor estimating techniques that allow for an estimate with limited accuracy but enough confidence for a go / no go decision. The factor estimating method derives its name from applying derivative factors for the preparation of the investment estimate of a project. The method is sometimes called a top-down estimate and is based on limited project scope. It uses rules of thumb, parametric models or historical databases to provide relevant cost data.
