Define distribution for start time of the task

Postby DavidB » Tue Oct 04, 2016 9:54 pm

Is it possible to set uncertainties for task start times?

Yes, however cases in which this can be used are limited such as the first activity in the project as otherwise start times are a product of the precedent network. To set uncertainty for start times on a activity, right-click on the activity ID and choose Task Information.

- In the General tab, set Low (early) and High (late) start times for the activity.

- Click the Distributions tab.
- Select the Start Time sub tab.
- Select a distribution from the Distribution drop down list. The shape and parameters of teh charted in the Probability Density chart to the right.
- Depending upon the distribution type, you can modify parameters (e.g. Most Likely)
- Click OK to assign the distribution.

How can I see output distributions in RiskyProject Lite?

You cannot see output distributions (frequency charts, cumulative probability plots, etc.) in RiskyProject Lite. The exception is RiskyProject Add-in in Microsoft Project, where you can distributions for finish time, cost, and duration of project. We recommend you to upgrade to RiskyProject Professional.
