Base duration for uniform distribution

Post by TomGR » Thu Jan 19, 2017 3:46 pm

I have a uniform distribution from 5 days to 10 days. The base duration is 7 days. What does the base duration mean for uniform distribution?

In case of uniform distribution, based duration will not be used for probabilistic calculation. It is used for deterministic calculation only. The same is true for most other distributions, such as normal, discrete and custom. Based duration will be used for Triangular distribution only.
