Starts the Products Configuration Wizard , Click Next
 Displays some services will be started or reset, Click Yes and Next

Installed Pre-requisites and Project Server on
Now, Click on Refresh it will take you to the next stage

Confirms the Database Server and Name, Click Next 

Starts the Configuration wizard, may consume up to 30 minutes.

 Configuration successfull, Great, Click on Finish

Note: You need to run the Configuration Wizard on other WFE's and APP Servers one at a time. You shouldn't run Configuration Wizard at the same time on all WFE and APP Servers as it will conflict and may corrupt the configuration.

After this, I executed the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard on server

Click on Cancel as I'll configure the Project Server at a later stage.
