The formula to calculate the number of iterations needed in an Increment is
(No. of developers * Total Increment Length)/Load-factor

Can some one please verify the formula, and explain how to calculate the load-factor.

What process are you referring to?
XP for example used to have a load factor (it's deprecated now), but the formula doesn't sound familiar to me.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
