Quantifying Uncertainty in Early Lifecycle Cost Estimation ( QUELCE )

  title={Quantifying Uncertainty in Early Lifecycle Cost Estimation ( QUELCE )},
  author={Robert D. Anderson},
QUELCE Workshop The Quantifying Uncertainty in Early Lifecycle Cost Estimation (QUELCE) workshop enables a client to convene a set of domain experts to formulate early lifecycle cost estimates expressed as cost distributions rather than single points. The QUELCE method involves a ve-step process that begins with identifying potential future changes to nominal program execution that will in uence program cost. This is followed by probabilistic modeling of the interrelationships of the program… CONTINUE READING
