Uncertainty Register

The Uncertainty Register page allows a user to add and apply uncertainties to the project scenario.  The uncertainty applied to the scenario will affect the tasks, based on the type selected.  These tasks are listed as a tree structure.

This functionality is used to apply the saved uncertainties to the selected scenario of the project.  When a task selected in two uncertainties, the highest priorities task distribution values automatically applied to the other task also.

Steps:

  1. Simulations —>Uncertainty Register
  2. Add the uncertainties with values.
  3. Click the tick mark button to apply the saved uncertainty. (Figure 1) While applying uncertainty, if there any manually edited tasks then a validation message shown as in Figure 5.  If you don’t want to overwrite the data you can click the Keep Changes
