PERT Analysis Fields

PERT Analysis is a technique used to evaluate task durations using best-case (optimistic), expected-case (expected), and worst-case (pessimistic) scenarios based on a task's duration, start date, or finish date. All PERT Analysis fields use Custom fields to store the information. Table B-13 shows PERT Analysis fields.

For information about working with PERT Analysis, see "Setting Task Durations" on page 138.
