First Mars flight is approaching. Let's see how to plan the final phase with MonteCarloProject.

In task edit form different rules can be set for calculating planned task start times in MonteCarloProject. Alternative rules are described below.

  • Automatic:task planned start time is set equal to the maximum of predecessors' planned end times. This rule is useful when all predecessors must be finished before task can start and there are no other constraints for the start time. In other words task starts immediately after finishing the predecessor tasks.
  • Flexible:task planned start time cannot be earlier than the maximum of predecessors' planned end times. This rule is useful when all predecessors must be finished before task can start but there can be other constraints for the start time. In other words task can also start at some later time.
  • Manual: task planned start time is set manually. This rule is useful when task does not necessarily have to wait for the predecessors to finish. In other words task can also start earlier.

MonteCarloProject includes now creation of task hierarchy with unlimited number of levels and improved Gantt chart.

In high risk projects both individual task costs and durations as well as task dependencies are hard to evaluate. Risk effects can be modeled by Monte Carlo -method.

MonteCarloProject includes now slack or float calculations for tasks.
