How do I use a pert formula in Jira


We are using JIRA for new feature tracking in our Project Management group.  In new features I would like my Dev's to be able to entire three times, optimistic, best guess, and pessimistic and then have the pert formula applied (O+BG(4)+P)/6, and then show the three entrees as well as spitting out the formula results (on feature page).

I am not savvy enough to write an add-on and I don't want to add to many custom fields, my new features are already starting to look very busy.

I can't seem to find the add-on that I was told existed, by the PM of JIRA at a road show that I attended either.

Perhaps someone can point me at this stuff or tell me a way to do this, or write an add-on that will work?  Suggestions?

I would like to know this as well. Being a Software Development Manager there are times that this type of functionality would be incredibly helpful. I know that Microsoft TFS allows for customised fields and we have achieved this utilising this technique.

Not that I am aware of.  Bloody shame really.

well, it means we have to create some custom fields if we want PERT?

Hello Samantha,

We have developed an add-on that integrates PERT estimations into Jira Cloud. Now it is fast and simple to use three point estimation technique for your original estimates fields. Please, check the images of the add-on to see how it works.
