The social effects of the economic reform and Détente policy in Egypt can be summarized in two factors: The first is income reduction due to the loss of jobs because of privatization policies or the difficulty of finding job opportunities.
The second factor is the increase of the cost of living due to the rising in prices. These two factors have caused the most dangerous two social effects: Unemployment and poverty .To reduce these effects, the Egyptian government has taken several procedures depending mainly on income maintenance and wealth maintenance. This research analyzed the offensive effects affecting the working class by applying the reform economic programmers on two levels:
The first level is: The level of distributing the local income. The second level is: The deterioration in the level of living of this class. The most important results that the researcher concluded are:
1. Reform programmers lead to the increase of unemployment and poverty levels in both the long and the short terms in the Egyptian society.
2. The procedures that the Egyptian government has taken to handle the bad effects of reform policy did not help in handling these effects, but only in reducing them.
The researcher recommended to manage policy of reducing expenditures only in the urgent situations, and not to depend the ready-made recipes of the international monetary fund and the international bank when solving the economic problems. The researcher, also, recommended that the aim of these programmers and reform policies is to handle, not to reduce the cases of these bad effects.

The planning process is considered to be one of the most important tasks in our practical life. The project is divided into a number of activities according to the plan. Each activity represents functional process which requires time in order to be carried out. This period of time is considered either limited or probable. The aim of research after studying the probable time of the activities is to find out the suitable distribution for calculating the range of an appropriate of the three uncertain times which include: optimistic, pessimistic and moderate time. As for Beta distribution It was previously considered a four fold parameter for adequate distribution which was used to estimate the average of the activity of triple times. In this research many exceptional problems have been put aside concerning Beta distribution usages one of them is giving four weights to moderate time compared with one Wight which is given to the optimistic time and another is given to pessimistic time. We have also adapted that method on the present practical & we have got an outcome which shows suitability of Two – Sided Power Distribution for time and activates.
