Level of Effort (LOE) Calculator PDF Print

How many times have you been asked by a technical lead/manager to provide a time estimate for how long script development will take? ATI's Automation Development Estimator will help you to provide an estimate. (Note: calculations are not guaranteed, and ATI holds no responsibility for how they are used on your project)


Instructions
  • Enter values for both automation and manual factors
    • Values may be entered to estimated the ROI prior to automation implementation
    • Values may be entered to determine what certain factors must be to achieve a desired ROI
    • Values may be entered to calculate the ROI after automation implementation
  • Get the calculated level of effort at the bottom of the table.
