Hi Experts,

What are the total objects of :Reports,Forms,User-Exit,Dictionary,IMG Configurations?

Which will help me for estimating the total cost of a project.

What are the other objects for estimating the project cost through Project estimator?

Thanks & Regards.

Hello Ankur

Since the objects you are mentioning can vary widely in their complexity the total project costs will vary widely as well. This is not to say that cost estimation cannot be done yet it has to rely on the experiences made with similar objects in previous projects.

Thus, in order to get reasonable cost estimations it is mandatory to do the estimation at the beginning of the project (<b>planned costs</b>) and review them at the end of the project (<b>acutal costs</b>). Based on this comparison you should be able to narrow the gap between planned and acutal costs within the next project.

Finally, do not forget the costs for one of most important steps: <b>testing</b>. This will always be underestimated.
