This successful incorporation can be add on to the services based on the complexity of the activities and the skills and knowledge of the project stakeholders. It s examined that the level of involvement for this project is possibly mentioned for four group of stakeholders. In each of the phase their involvement plays key role. The article also reviewed that highest involvement with the project is served by the project manager whereas contractors have a lowest rate of engagement to the panning process of the projects.

It is defined that with the successful implementation of practical implementation the ideas of project manager will grow at a higher rate. The difference between the traditional project managers and the current project managers are also illustrated here considering the identification of the reference classes, probability distribution and class distribution (Batselier & Vanhoucke, 2016). How an empirical database management system can restrict the data flow control in a project is also illustrated in this journal. In addition to this, for selecting the reference class how the probability distribution approach is beneficial are ate illustrated here. Not only this but also, the details application of the RFC method and their 3 steps implementation process are also illustrated in this journal. Even for multiple experimental study also this approach is very much beneficial that is also elaborated here considering Monte Carlo Simulation approach.

Considering the relationship between the costs and project management profits are all elaborated in this report. How mostly the business organizations gain commercial profit from their application are also elaborated considering both the qualitative and quantitative profits. In addition to this, the different evolutionary stages are also illustrated in this journal. There must be an accurate balance between the investment and the profit that could have gained from the project management prcatices are also mentioned here. In order to accomplish any project how the estimated cost can be structured is calculated considering the Return in Investment (ROI) cost benefit analysis approach.
