Quote:
However, different tasks may have different uncertainties around 0. We can model this by varying the σ parameter which corresponds to the standard deviation of the normal distribution


So all he did is move the uncertainty of project estimation into the σ parameter, leaving one to still having to estimate σ.

This should go into the book "How to Lie with Stastics."
