  • Project Estimating Tools - Our benchmark data is often used to establish project estimates. Q/P provides automated mechanisms for individuals to estimate their projects based on project size and benchmark data.
    • Benchmark data can be licensed to work with Software Measurement, Reporting and Estimating (SMRe). When licensed with SMRe, the benchmark data can be used for estimating or to compare a development project's productivity, schedule, and staffing against industry benchmarks.
