The consequences of poor (or good) judgment in es-timation are reflected in software quality, cost, time-to-market, and operational reliability. While judgment plays a prominent role in aviation and medicine - the same care arguably needs to be taken in making trade-offs impacting software development. This panel will bring together practitioners to discuss aspects of judgment in software estimation including a discussion of current practices and influences from other disci-plines.
