The Best Way to Determine LOE
By greimer on Jan 12, 2007
The only way to estimate LOE, I've decided, is to actually do the work. Then you can get back with your manager and say, "I estimate that it took four days." This method is nice because it gives you a high degree of confidence in the correctness of the estimate. There remains, of course, the problem of finding out how long it will take to come up with the estimate. Hopefully they wouldn't ask for that.
