The answer to this one is there ain't no single answer. Each company does it
according to their own internal bone-castings and bean-counting. I've seen it
done by anticipated units, I've seen it done by average project time, I've seen
it done by pulling it out of a hat.

I wish him luck, but this one's a no-win situation. Best bet is to come up
with *some* method that he can sell an explanation of to his top brass, and run
with it.
