There is a concept in Agile called Velocity[^]. This is a prediction of how long it will take a development team to complete a specific unit of functionality.

It takes time to measure velocity as it is based on previous projects, so the greater the body of previous project work to use as a basis, the more accurate will be the velocity.

In its simplest format, velocity is an estimate of how long it will take to complete a project based on the time taken to complete similar project previously.
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
