Prioritizing the Triple Constraint
One of the first tasks a project manager is faced with is the prioritization of the Triple Constraint; this can only be done by communicating with the client whether the client understands project management or has ever heard of the triple constraint, in their mind, they already know what is most important to them. If your job is project manager, is to find this out, this is usually done by asking them a series of very, well worded questions.

This assignment has shown about how and the importance of comprehensive evaluation on the Triple Constraint (Time, Cost, Scope) in a project under uncertainty situation. We introduce an index called as Project Reliability. By modeling the quality as a success/failure process, Project Reliability becomes an index of measurement to evaluate the probability of project completion within the time and cost target and passes the entire QC requirements.
Even maybe looks so complex and lead the managers have a little base on their estimate due to a unclear value of probability, all the proposed method above still become important and worth to
