Set the project range between the project start (0% completion) and finish (100% completion) between which data must be used to calculate EVM output measures during simulation.

The forecast accuracy of EVM predictive methods can be unreliable at the early stages of the project and irrelevant at the late stages of the project. Therefore, the accuracy calculations can be restricted to the middle stages of the project progress by setting the two parameters (lowPC and highPC) as a percentage completion interval between which the MPE and MAPE is calculated. These measures can be calculated using the P2Simulator:get_time_mape, P2Simulator:get_time_mpe, P2Simulator:get_cost_mape, and P2Simulator:get_cost_mpe functions.
