Tibor Karaszi does the math:

There are plenty of articles out there recommending you to up the “cost threshold for parallelism” configuration option. Most of you already know this, if not fire up your favorite search engine and spend a few minutes reading about it.

This is one interesting approach to back into a cost threshold for parallelism.
