Effort estimate
Explanation:
Perhaps, "effort estimate", but I'm not too sure about it!

e.g.

# Use the known development effort from the selected project, (analogue), as an initial estimate for the target project
# Compare each of the chosen attributes, (size, platform etc.,).
# Establish or adjust the initial effort estimate in light of the differences between the analogue and your planned project.

Now that we have estimated the effort of our project, we can determine the schedule. Unless you have a better method, you can use the following rule-of-thumb (McConnell 183) to translate your effort estimate into a schedule estimate:

schedule in months = 3.0 x effort-months
