Optimistic project management vs realistic project management
A project manager has made the following assumptions (based on certain reasons) and proposed estimate as "x" days

1. No changes would come
2. No feedback would come from stakeholders
3. Zero defects would arise
4. Though people are new to technology - the ramp-up time considered as very minimal

If the Optimistic project estimate is "x" then what shall be realistic estimate? (x+30% x) at least?
