Question for all listerv members:

How do you estimate a documentation project for a complex software system? I have read estimating "rules-of thumb" of a couple of pages per day. However, that still leaves the following questions:

1.) How do you know how many pages will be required?

2.) Isn't there a significant up-front analysis phase BEFORE any pages are created? (Isn't the common rap against programmers about prematurely jumping into implementation just as appropriate to Technical Writers?)

All responses appreciated.
