 SANDHYARANI P BHIDE Topic Author Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 4 Thank you received: 1 Hi, I don't understand how this answer was calculated for the question from Oliver Lehmann's free 75 question test. Can anyone please enlighten? The correct answer is B ie. approx. 5.2 days. 27. A project manager made 3-point estimates on a critical path and found the following results: (Check attached table below) Assuming ±3 sigma precision level for each estimate, what is the standard deviation of the allover path? (A) App. 4.2 days ( App. 5.2 days (C) App. 6.2 days (D) You can not derive the path standard deviation from the information given.

 Ivan Fućak Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 1 Thank you received: 0 You can use following link for calculation: www.firebrandtraining.co.uk/learn/pmp/co...e-activity-durations You have to calculate standard deviation for each activity. (24-12)/6=2, (14-/6=1, (27-15)/6=2, 28-10)/6=3, (35-17)/6=3 Variances of each activities are squares of deviations of activities. Stand.deviation of path is square root of sum of variances: SQRT(4+1+4+9+9)=SQRT(27)=5,19 Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.

 Mohammed Yaseen Visitor For +_ 3 Sigme, the standard deviation = 3 * Standard Deviation of 1 Sigma prceision level. So in this case, the standard deviation should be = 3 * 5.19 = 15.57 Hope, I am right. If not, PLEASE explain me. Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.
