Project Management tools are considered very important for the success of software projects. Moreover, there are different Software projects scheduling methods that project managers can follow in order to estimate the duration of Software projects. This research discusses the main distribution methods such as Uniform, Beta, Triangular and Gaussian. Moreover, it provides a comparison between them through a simulation experiment. The simulation experiment is conducted using a special software that was developed for the purpose of this study.
