You cannot assign a risk directly to a lag however, you can assign a statistical distribution to lag between predecessor and successor. This uncertainty in the duration of the lag is then accounted for during the Monte Carlo simulation.


To assign uncertainty to lags, open the Task Information dialog box and click the Predecessors tab. Here you can set lags. By default it is zero, but you can assign Low, Base, and High estimates for the lag If you enter low and high estimates, you must also select a distribution type.
