Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Per day cost of Tester = x
Days spent on preparing test plan, test cases and actual testing = y
Cost of per day usage of testing tools (if any) = a
Days testing tools used for the purpose = b
Overhead Cost = c
Effort estimation for testing activity = (x * y) + (a * b) + c

    Estimate the effort based on the activity. Identify your tasks and derive a set of activities from each task. Derive the effort for each activity by consulting with ur team members and identifying pessimistic, optimistic and mostlikely effort. You can have a template like the following: Task Activity Milestone Effort required for activity Startdate EndDate Status .. Test Plan Preparation Requirements Analysis Scope Identification Test Strategy (Test Approach) identification Resource Requirements Identify Risks .. Review & baseline Test Case Spec Feature 1 Feature 2 .. Test Environment Setup Product Deployment 3rd party software installation .. Test Automation Feature1 .. Test Prioritization & Execution Sanity testing Verify Fixed Defects Regression testing Adhoc testing Trouble-shooting deviations .. Test Report Analyse the deviations Log the deviations Do Bugscrub .. QA Certification Analyse Test Report Make Decision to certify or not .. Good luck.
