This paper presents the results of the best combinations executed by using crystal ball tool to achieve quality and time constraint goals of an organization. The software practices of SDLC phases used from the CDP model [1]. This paper reveals that how crystal ball has executed the different combinations or simulations to find the best combination to be used further for a particular domain i. e. for particular type of projects. For example: software applications such as web applications, mobile applications and so on. This is was done as the part of process improvement of a software organization "Saber Corps (made up)". This whole process represents the output of process improvement process of an organization.
