To arrive at this project size predictability you have, as we said, reduced to your projects into smaller manageable pieces of work. To perform this form of decomposition you are already using a form of project estimation technique. It is known as Parallel Estimation and involves classification of projects using information you have at the time of estimation.

In our experience projects use two types of Parallel Estimation. These are Parallel Empirical Estimation (PEE) and Parallel Conversant Estimation (PCE). The estimating techniques use fundamentally the same principle which is that you can contrast and compare elements of one project with projects delivered in the same or parallel environment before. As a result of this contrast and compare activity you can allocate effort to the new project using a previous project as a benchmark. The difference between the two techniques is in the information from the previous projects you use.
