Re: [xml-dev] How to estimate the time needed to create an XMLschema?

Whatever you come up with, multiply it by pi before submitting the estimate. A long-ago colleague advised me of that and it has worked
well for me.
I tend to use the kg-lb conversion factor, but pi may be better.

For example, the estimated time needed to create an XML schema containing 200 elements, each element having 1-3 attributes, is
____ hours.
If you know that you have 200 elements, each having 1-3 attributes, then
you've done most of the work already.  In the general case, the work
required to go from knowing that you have 200 elements to having a
schema file (or files) would be a fraction of the work required to work
out the 200 elements needed to model the thing that you are modeling.

Where does 'create' end?  Beyond the schema file, does 'create' include
the element and attribute documentation, comprehensive examples, sample
documents, template documents, editor customization, and other things
that may be required for people to be able to actually use the schema?
