Project Burndown Monte Carlo Simulation Dashboard Panel

This feature is available in Ultimate edition only.



The Analytics Project Burndown Monte Carlo Simulation dashboard panel shows the historical project burndown values just like the regular Project Burndown panel. However, this panel shows probable delivery dates based on a Monte Carlo Simulation using the historical slope value from the Burndown line. A simulation start date allows you to bypass fluctuations in scope that typically occur as a project ramps up.

The probable delivery dates are annotated to indicate where the 50 percentile, the 75 percentile, the 85 percentile, and the 95 percentile values occur. The default is the start date on the selected project, but you can change it in the panel parameters

Configuring Dashboard Parameters

To further configure the data shown in the dashboard, click on the  icon in the top right corner of the dashboard panel, and then select the report parameters. To learn more, see Configuring Dashboard Panel Parameters/Filters.
