Saving distribution for task duration in RiskyProject Enterprise

Postby TomGR » Thu Jan 19, 2017 3:51 pm

I performed Monte Carlo simulations of project schedule and saved results in the database. Do you save distributions for project duration, finish time, and cost or you save distributions for individual tasks as well?

We save statistical distributions for project parameters, such as project duration, cost, and finish times in RiskyProject Enterprise database. In fact we save all samples for project duration, cost, and finish times for each iterations of Monte Carlo simulation. Based on these samples we generate statistical distribution which are displayed when you double click on Gantt bar in project portfolio view.

We also save tasks durations, costs, work, start and finish times for each iterations of Monte Carlo simulations. However these information is used only for interface with other project scheduling and portfolio management software. When you perform Monte Carlo simulations, save a schedule and open it again, you would need to perform Monte Carlo simulations again to see results for individual tasks.
