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.



any update on this?

Not that I am aware of.  Bloody shame really.

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