To use the “Effort Estimation” module on Open Orbit the Super User of your account has to configure some calculators:
Calculators can be as follows:
This step is important as it provides the framework to initiate the process study and compare before vs. after
Power user can access this module on the Process Model section. Click on “Effort Estimation”
You will be redirected to a new tab. Use the drop down list (created by the Super User of the account) to select the analysis you want to conduct:
This will populate the recommended list of metric to be measured at step /process level.
Create the happy path and connect the relevant metrics. Read Process Model on how to create diagnostic map. Record metric info by editing the metric tile.
Baseline: Current measurement of the particular metric UoM: Unit of measure %Automated: What is the expected %age of the metric that may be considered for automation. You may leave this blank and record it later Worktype: You can use this and configure different worktypes for your project. Let's assume there are different kind of transactions that are processed at a particular step that take different time. Use worktypes to records different data. For example:
You can add new worktypes using the button on the top right hand menu option.
Once you are done with the happy path and recording data in metrics, use the generate result to get the effort estimator:
You will get an auto generated output that will help analysing the effort requirement at step level and therefore you can draw your attention to the areas where important.
