Top-down Estimating (Definition)

Approximating the size (duration, effort and cost) and risk of a project by looking at the project as a whole and comparing it to previously performed similar projects. The comparison may be made directly using "analogous estimating," through an algorithm as in "parametric estimating", from the memory of estimating experts or Lessons Learned Reports.
