Is it correct to use P80 for baseline schedule? I am assuming that this means that 80% of projects can meet the baseline schedule / plan. Are there statistics to support my assumed understanding?
I would like to post this question to planning / scheduling professionals whether they know the best probabilistic plan to use as baseline, in lieu of any other actual information (WAG). Base on the vast actual experience out there, if you are given the choice, would you use P80 for your baseline?

The problem is to supposse that things will happend as scheduled without to undestand that after the first version things will change constantly. You can take a close look to Barry Bohem´s Cone of Uncertainty to understand why. For me to have a baseline has no sense. There are other ways to control and monitoring outseide there from long time ago.
Sergio made a good point.
