Project Planning with Little's Law

Forecasting the amount of time and resources that will be needed to complete a software development project has traditionally been more art than science. There's a great deal of variability associated with our work, and we tend to account for this by "padding" our best estimates with additional time to account for it. Sometimes we're on target.

Conservatively estimating time and resources can be more detrimental to a business than missing a deadline, as inflated estimates could cause business leaders to de-prioritize a project that would otherwise represent a better return.
