The consequences of poor (or good) judgment in estimation are reflected in software quality, cost, time-tomarket, and operational reliability. While judgment plays a prominent role in aviation and medicine–the same care arguably needs to be taken in making tradeoffs impacting software development. This panel will bring togetherpractitioners to discuss aspects of judgment in software estimation including a discussion of current practices and influences from other disciplines.
