*Read more about the general principles of Cost estimation here.*

If the story is delegated to another circle and cost is configured to automatically synchronize, then the displayed cost will be set in that circle. Read more about delegation synchronization here.

#### Warnings

If this `alh-replace:type`

epic`/alh-replace`

have any warnings regarding the cost, then they are displayed at the top of this box (Read More).

alh-optional:enableEffortCynefin

#### Highest Cynefin Complexity

The Cynefin complexity is not accumulated as a summed or weighted count. Instead you can see what the highest complexity assessment is of any story below this `alh-replace:type`

epic`/alh-replace`

, both in *Total* and for the not completed *Remaining* stories. This does not give a complete overview of the distribution of complexity for this `alh-replace:type`

epic`/alh-replace`

, but it gives a hint as to where the complexity lies and if it has been completed or not. Read more about Cynefin.

alh-optional:enableEffort

#### Accumulated Effort Estimates

The accumulated effort is the sum of all effort estimates of the stories/epics below this `alh-replace:type`

epic`/alh-replace`

. It shows the amount of effort (measured in story points, workdays or whatever unit that has been chosen for effort estimates) for the entire `alh-replace:type`

epic`/alh-replace`

. Effort estimates are both accumulated for the not completed *Remaining* stories and for all *Total* stories to give an overview of how much work is completed compared with the total amount of estimated work.

alh-optional:enableKano,enableIsMustHave

A subset of the stories below this `alh-replace:type`

epic`/alh-replace`

might be Must-haves. The accumulated effort for this subset, both *Remaining* and *Total*, is also shown. This is to give an overview of how much of all the work consists of Must-have as opposed to optional stories which might be down-prioritized. Read more about working with Must-haves.

/alh-optional

alh-optional:enableEffortWorstCase

#### Accumulated Worst-case Estimates

The accumulated *Remaining* worst-case estimate of the `alh-replace:type`

epic`/alh-replace`

is based on all the not completed children below. Depending on whether multiple accumulation methods are allowed (see circle configuration) it is derived either as a simple sum (if children are assumed to be mutually dependent) or using the root-sum-squared method (if children are assumed to be mutually independent).

The accumulated *Total* worst-case estimate is deliberately not shown, since it would not be statistically correct to use this digit for anything else than uncertainty comparison.

#### Effort Estimation Uncertainty

Uncertainty is the distance between accumulated *expected *and *worst-case* effort in percentage. The uncertainty is shown for both not completed *Remaining* stories and for all *Total* stories to give an overview of how much uncertainty remains – and whether the uncertainty has been reduced compared with the original offset (*Total*). Read more about working with uncertainties.

alh-optional:enableMonetaryCost

#### Accumulated Monetary Cost

The accumulated monetary cost is the summed financial cost of all stories below this `alh-replace:type`

epic`/alh-replace`

, which is not directly work. It is estimated using the configured currency of the site and is shown for both not completed i.e *Remaining* stories and for all *Total* stories.
