Yesterday I released a minor update to Version 2 of the Statistical PERT® Beta Edition. This minor release improves some formatting of the Vlookup tab so it uses the same, yellow-shading + blue text format for cells eligible for end-user inputs.
I also added another feature that was included in Version 4 of Statistical PERT® Normal Edition: “Click for help” buttons. On all interactive worksheets, there is a prominent, orange “Click to call” button to make it easy for anyone who wants free, email support to get it. The button links to my site’s “Contact Me” page where they can fill-in their name, email account, and question/issue.
This summer I’ll be working on Version 3 of SPERT® Beta Edition. Version 3 will include the same feature set as what the SPERT® Normal Edition has with its Version 4 release. That is, it will include the ability to use a specified standard deviation, it’ll have a Monte Carlo simulation worksheet, and have up to three scenarios on the Agile Forecast tab.
If you want to be notified whenever I release new versions of Statistical PERT, I’ve got a new way to do that: add yourself to my new email newsletter. Once a month, I’ll send a short newsletter offering a tip or trick for how to use Statistical PERT, plus I’ll send out notifications whenever I release new versions of these spreadsheets.
