This cost estimating tool does not include project management costs. Neither does it include local taxes. You should set aside between 10% and 20% of the application cost for project management.
As with all software, the application cost has a maintenance component for hosting, monitoring, engagement, marketing, updates, and licenses. The industry average accepted cost to maintain software is roughly 15-20% / year of its MVP development cost.
The final total is a Class 5* order-of-magnitude estimate and is prepared when little or no design information is available.
*Class 5 estimates, as defined by the AACE 18R-97, are prepared for strategic business planning purposes.
