I asked a similar question several months ago. Refer to the replies for the post "Rough estimate of time needed to upgrade to PPM 8.0" for timeframes.

Re: PPM 7.5 to 8.0 Migration

Hi LJOKIRK and Dominic,

We upgrade some PPM servers from 7.5 to 8 adn the time of the migration depends of how is configurated your data base schema. If the schema was migrated from other like production or demo the problems will start there because a restore of the schema not always are like the original. We have a case that the migration tooks one week and it was because the DBA does not applied the grants as PPM requested. If all the data base access grants are find the migration will took more less than 2 hours. Yo also have to consider that the post upgrade steps tooks more time.
If your SAID are active you can download the all manuals of the product, the link is

and the link for the service pack is

I hope helped you.
Kind regards,
