  This add-in performs the computations of CPM and PERT. Given the activities of the project, the add-in computes the critical path. The program creates a graph of the project network and a Gantt chart showing the schedule. With restricted resources, the add-in generates schedules which optimize resource usage and cash flows. Activity durations may be specified as random variables. Then the Monte Carlo method is used for simulation analysis.

When activity times are uncertain, simulation can be used to estimate the project duration and the critical path. The Random Variables add-in can be used to model the uncertainty.
