Steps to Create an OUM Estimating Model

Welcome to my 5-part series – “Steps to Create an OUM Estimating Model”

Introduction

I am a methodologist.  Together with my Oracle Method colleagues, numerous hours have been spent defining method structure and developing collateral to support Oracle Services delivery.   We also facilitate the development of estimating models for a variety of technologies and applications.

Estimating models come in many shapes and sizes.   I have been exposed to different estimating tools and approaches for estimating services -- both from the legacy Oracle estimating models and acquired estimating models.   Oracle’s own internal estimating models continue to evolve as the nature of service delivery changes and as best of breed approaches are identified.

Although I cannot provide specifics of Oracle’s internal estimating models, I can provide tips that I have learned over the years that may help you build your own estimating model, specifically an Oracle Unified Method (OUM) estimating model.

Join me tomorrow as we begin to explore how to develop an OUM estimating model.

Hi Linda, Thanks for your post. We look forward for such guidelines since our partners are asking for this due to the fact that we cannot share with them Oracle Estimating model.Can you please advise if you are going to deliver a presentation/webcast or post blogs? Looking forward, Thanks and regards, Sarkis

Hi Sarkis,

Thanks for following and for your comment. I will be posting a series of blogs over the course of a week. I hope you will find it useful to share with partners to give them some direction for creating estimating models.
