LEAL PABÓN, JESSICA LORENA | 2018-12-07
This article presents the results of the research project: "Time Management Method for Software Development Projects", where a method was used to calculate the time spent on a software development project from its preparation phase until the delivery of it, applying the best practices of the PMBOK 5th edition, the RUP methodology and the estimation metric per Use Cases, so that companies and people dedicated to this activity, execute the project time estimation and carry out an effective programming of their activities. The proposed method consists of six phases: preparation, initiation, planning, development, testing and delivery, where inputs, activities, tools, roles and output artefacts are defined, allowing time to be calculated in each phase. The validation of the method was carried out through of the expert judgment technique, obtaining a favorable result that shows the degree of acceptance of it. According to the evaluation, the method provides a level of precision in the estimates of time, defines activities that provide a basis for estimating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling the research project, as well as an appropriate logical sequence of activities.
