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.

Correction! This is a methodology NOT a product!!!

Open has this built in as a scheduling functionality.

Open Plan was capable of quick Monte Carlo simulations, and gave detailed information regarding our activities’ early and late dates

You can read about Monte Carlo Risk Analysis in Chris Hendrickson’s on-line book Project Management for Construction: Scheduling with Uncertain Durations

There are several discussions in the Schedule Risk and Schedule Risk Analysis forum regarding Monte Carlo.

Hi Sai,

Basically, Monte Carlo Analysis allows you to enter Optemistic/Most Likely/Pessimistic durations on activities. You then identify the task you wish to evaluate(ie project/milestone completion activity).

You then run iterations where the system computes different combinations using programme logic and duration combinations.

End result would be a % likely completion of the identified milestones and completion dates.

Regards,

Hermi
