A Simulation Approach based Project Schedule Assessment

  title={A Simulation Approach based Project Schedule Assessment},
  author={Ruiping Wang and Xu Li and Xiao Bing Song and Lei Dai and Yixin Li},
Traditional program evaluation and review technique lacks of complex task relation models. To tackle this, this paper proposes a project schedule risk assessment model based on extended Petri net, in which the characteristics of task duration, task overlap and sub-tasks are modelled. Based on the characteristics of concurrent iteration in product development schedule, the influence of each sub-task relationship on the simulation uncertainty is considered. In this case, several mathematical…

Modeling impacts of process architecture on cost and schedule risk in product development
This paper integrates several important characteristics of PD processes into a single model, highlighting the effects of varying process architecture and yielding several managerial insights, including: how rework cascades through a PD process, trading off cost and schedule risk, interface criticality, and occasions for iterative overlapping.
