Although structured as a program-level request, it is identical to a project request if the wording is changed. It is designed to be used with the Change Control Log Template.
Use this simple log to keep track of changes, including their impact on scope, cost and time. This is to be used in conjunction with the Program Change Request Template.
Statistical PERT uses standard functions for the normal distribution that come built-in to Microsoft Excel. Using these two functions, SPERT can create endless estimates with probabilities ranging between 0 and 100%. SPERT allows estimators to subjectively indicate how likely the most likely outcome really is. With SPERT, an estimator’s subjective opinion changes the SPERT standard deviation, and that affects the SPERT-created probabilities associated with SPERT estimates. To be used in conjunction with the accompany article Introducing Statistical PERT.
