I've been asked to look for information regarding estimating documentation
(user guides, training manuals and materials) time according to system
development time. My reaction is that it doesn't make sense, but I don't
want to tell the "powers that be" that without checking. I've searched the
Internet and the archives, but haven't found anything that is a direct
ratio between the two. The closest I've come is percent of total budget.
Has anyone heard of this method?
