B.9 Programming Environments and Related Costs
Programming environment:
Python 3.9 along with Numpy, Pandas, Seaborn, matplotlib. pyplot, ipywidgets, and
default Python libraries.
A file converter to convert any common database file types into CSV files
Statistics tracking software for tracking usage statistics during the first deployment
There are no associated costs with the programming environment as all of these tools are
available as no-cost open-source software.
-
Environment Costs:
We will need workstations and storage hardware to facilitate the deployment phases. Our
developers will need workstations that can connect to a central network to begin
programming, testing, and collecting data analytics.
We are budgeting $25,000 to the environment costs and these costs will be accounted for in
the first installment payment Human Resource Requirements
We require a staff of six developers to complete the project. They will each be paid a
monthly salary of $5,000 per month. The estimate time of completion is two months so a
total of $60,000 of the total budget should go towards employee salaries.
Phase one (Deployable application): 120 development hours – total cost: $150,000 (this
includes the equipment cost and the first month salary payments).
Phase two (Major Feature Updates and Bug Fixes): 160 development hours + 1 week of
allocated backlog - total cost: $350,000. The additional costs for this phase are incurred
from the following:
o More developer hours
o Deployment costs associated with getting the product to customers o
Hiring outside testers
o Increased hardware requirements needed to scale the application o
A reserve for unseen costs
