Estimation - When will i get the functionality done and at what Cost

Estimating and Cost with reasonable accuracy that can help organizations in decision-making has been a constant challenge. Various approaches, strategies have been put forth and there has been continuous discussion among the community with evolving ideas. With this context i would like to provide an approach on how can we do estimation/costing by computing a forecasting model of when work gets completed and by how many teams. Discuss approaches on how to get the data that portfolio leaders, Program Managers are looking for which can provide them cost, consistent predictability and not yet compromise on the relative principles of estimation.
