I've recently stepped into a project management position associated with the ongoing upgrades to an old COBOL financial system used for payroll. I'm finding it difficult to nail down schedules and resource requirements for mods/enhancements I use to consider fairly simple in a non-COBOL environment. For example, I have only two priority #1 requirements on the table at the moment but my team members can't seem to nail down a schedule or resource plan. But, the requirements are only: 1) replace a current mailing address embedded within the systems outgoing payment leave and earning statement and the addition of a tracking number for each outgoing piece of mail. Can anyone help provide a little more detail as to why something like this would not be fairly cut-and-dry and a short effort of only a few weeks?
