As a preview of our new book: Forecasting and Simulating Software Development Projects: Effective Modeling of Kanban & Scrum Projects using Monte-carlo Simulation, here is a sample chapter. This chapter is a walkthrough of a modeling and simulation scenario of a project that proposes to build a new website.

This chapter shows how a model can help get a project approved, and them monitor progress on that project. It demonstrates how to initially create a quick model, and understand what staff and costs will be needed for various delivery options.
