Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Duration Database

Hi, quite sometime since I visited the site (since during their Comics-Sans Font Web era).

 

Projects are different. But are most Malaysian companies don't keep a comprehensive duration database (like cost estimating database)?

And that's what Malaysians are lagging behind westerners - data/info repository?

 

To develop this database, are there extra investment which probably business leaders reluctant to dig into?

 

Of course, durations are affected by job environment, job nature, resource load...

But at least you could have a wholesome basis to justify to management on the durations you estimate for activities.

(though in some situation, they still want the dateline no matter what history tells!)

 

Comments?
