Clearly, doing a proper job of managing requirements, including their development and tracing from ideas to specifications, to conceptual designs, and then to “as built” designs, is important.
Estimation is a fascinating area in science and engineering, and it is increasingly coming to the fore in other fields. With healthcare projects becoming increasingly complex and driven by growing regulation, estimation is a mix of art and science that needs to be mastered.
