Picture this scenario; you’re a project manager, project professional or contracts professional and you’re sitting in a conference room listening to the contractor’s update. The problem is that some contractors exclude necessary details to perform true earned value forecasting [in most cases not by malicious intent but probably due to lack of sophistication and exposure to project controls].
So you reach in your pocket [or purse] and pull out your phone and open up the Project Analytics App. You key in the necessary information, and the forecast results are shown. Here this data can be shared via text or email to your boss next to you to show them that projected forecast is not as optimistic as being discussed.
With these calculations, you can then open up a true dialogue to get the right conversations going. This app isn’t going to fix your project but it gives the project professional an edge.
Earned Value Calculator: Enter the standard earned value data [BCWS, BCWP, ACWP, & BAC] and the APA App will generate the predicted values within Earned Value Methodologies. This enables you to identify forecasts that our beyond reasonable thresholds. This data is sharable so you can provide your input to a colleague or manager while reviewing the data as the meeting with the contractor is occurring allowing for necessary dialogue to identify immediate problems with the project.
Schedule Analyzer: When reviewing schedules by the contractors, the necessary data can be entered into the calculator to see if the Schedule Health appears optimal. When reviewing this data with the contractor, an important dialogue can occur to improve the schedule health.
Risk Calculator [3 Point Risk]: When management is trying to achieve a confidence in Dates or Values. Enter the confidence level Dates or Values and the Project Analytics App provides the 95% confidence using the industry standard 3 Point Risk method. This provides an important set of discussions that could lead to potential mitigations with further management discussions.
Schedule Phase Slider: Industries use different terminologies during Stage Gate decisions for projects; however, they all intersect with commonality throughout engineering, design, & construction. In this slider all terminologies are aligned with the most common set of deliverables.
Schedule Level Definitions Slider: A key factor in pursuing optimal CPM Scheduling is that all parties involved must agree with level definitions. Provided in this slider is the industry best practices terminologies and definitions of schedule levels.
Schedule Industry Knowledge: Included is a wealth of Project Controls Industrial Knowledge. This includes but not limited to WBS Structures, Fragnets, Schedule Analytics [DCMA 14 & GASP], Forensic Scheduling, Risk summaries & Earned Value Summaries.
Assessment Tests: Test your industry knowledge in Planning/Scheduling, Earned Value, EPC Knowledge, or Procurement Knowledge.
Project Analytics App is only intended to share industry knowledge, or identify high level indicators of the project health. Absolute project correction requires the project team to perform detailed due diligence on a frequent basis in order to truly manage a project.
