Summary:

Critical Chain Project management uses statistical process control to more clearly define the relationships between tasks and the project end date by using buffers to represent process variation in project tasks. This paper shows how integrating effective statistical process control with the use of function points and standard processes can dramatically improve your ability to plan and control projects. Using examples based on real-life experience, it provides a simple method for controlling variation and risk.
