Planned effort of requirements
If, for example, you have created a requirement with a planned effort and want to refine it further, it can happen that the planned effort of the individual refinements exceeds the planned effort of the higher-level requirement. objektiF RM takes over the summation of the individual planned efforts for you.
Open a requirement with refinements. The planned effort is now called Fixed Planned Effort. Below this you see another field: Accumulated Planned Effort, which – as the name suggests – displays the totaled planned effort of all refinements.
If the sum of the estimated efforts exceeds the effort of the actual requirement, the effort turns red. You can now accept the new effort for the higher-level requirement by clicking on the button behind the totaled planned effort.
