Use Case Point Estimate Case Study
The Top Down Estimate approach that best suites the Augmented Reality System is a Use Case Point estimate. Since the scope of this project only includes a single warehouse rollout, a Use Case Point estimate is able to closely predict the tasks and actors needed to implement a single instance. A percentage of total revenue estimate would be unreliable as it projects a complete system rollout for all warehouses. In addition, the chosen warehouse for implementation does not generate revenue as it’s an operational expense so a percentage of revenue cannot be taken. After using a Use Case Point estimate, the total cost of implementation is $524,800. See Appendix 1 and 2 for more details of the estimate.
The Augmented Reality System inherently comes with a handful of risks due to the nature of the new technology and the cutting-edge vision. These risks include,
Integration Capability with ERP
Lack of Executive Support
Technology uncertainty is a risk that always inheres within cutting-edge technology implementations due to the unknown unknowns. For this project specifically, this …show more content…
The concepts of this project are clear but when development and user testing occurs, scope creep will get out of hand. The response type for this risk is to avoid with an agile development approach. By using an agile development approach, scope creep will be cleared up in the backlog, user feedback will move be considered/implemented quicker, and an accurate representation of the system will come to light clearer as modules will be completed at a time. This also creates a synergy with addressing the integration risk as modules will be completed at a time to then send off to integration teams consisting of Oracle members and a chosen AR
