Hi,

Critical path of the project has 3 activities in sequence . Activity A has optimistic estimate as 8,pessimistic as 16 and most likely as 12.Activity B has optimistic estimate as5,Pessimistic estimates as15 and most likely estimate as 0.Activity C has optimistic estimate as 10,pessismistic estimate as 20 and most likely as 15.What is the confidence that project would finish between 34-40 days?

Total project variance comes out to be 9.8 and square root of variance =2.7.Not sure how to solve further - Can you please assist?

## Confidence Level

### Re: Confidence Level

formula

Confidence Interval= Project Mean +/- 1SD will give you a range at 68% confidence

Project Mean +/- 2SD will give you a range at 95.5% confidence

Project Mean +/- 3SD will give you a range at 99.97% confidence

Confidence Interval= Project Mean +/- 1SD will give you a range at 68% confidence

Project Mean +/- 2SD will give you a range at 95.5% confidence

Project Mean +/- 3SD will give you a range at 99.97% confidence

### Re: Confidence Level

1 sigma =68.26%

2 Sigma =95.46%

3 Sigma =99.73%

6 Sigma = 99.99%

Thanks.

2 Sigma =95.46%

3 Sigma =99.73%

6 Sigma = 99.99%

Thanks.

### Re: Confidence Level

Thanks - So answer will be .68? Since SD of the project is 2.7?

a).68

b).997

c).95

d).88

a).68

b).997

c).95

d).88

Such questions are rare in PMP , do not spend too much time on those
