In the scenario you describe, we recommend using branching. In this case, specific activities are only executed probabilistically or based on a certain condition that can occur during simulation (e.g. late finish).
Here is a simple example below:
As part of a drilling process, a Gamma Ray Test is run. There are two results: Pass or Fail.
• Pass: Go directly to activity 15 Connection
• Fail: Response Plan is run, this takes anywhere from 2 – 5 days to make needed changes and rerun the test and then go to activity 15 Connection’
From historical data, the project manager estimates that the test will fail 20% of the time and the extra work will be required to fix any issues and rerun the test. In this case, he models the branches in the following manner.
The results can be seen in the Analysis, Success Rate view.
