My team was discussing scheduling this morning, specifically how we need to adjust our schedule to account for uncertainties upstream. I was reminded of a bit of scheduling wisdom given to me by a project manager at another facility some years ago. He would get the best estimates he could, multiply that by π, and present that as the final schedule; as he put it, an irrational schedule called for an irrational number.
