ProjectFlightDeck...schedule risk management with Earned Schedule

“Some argue that optimistic planning is the main—or only—reason for project failure. After all,
disappointment is usually the result of an inaccurate expectation.”  – Primavera white paper, 2009

For many projects, the key expectation is delivery date. Failure to meet the date means project failure. And, with it, worse consequences: delayed product launches that imperil leading-edge companies, overdue construction projects that incur large penalties, late government projects that breed spectacular cost overruns.

Manage schedule risk with Earned Schedule. Avoid project failure and its consequences.

ProjectFlightDeck exposes schedule risk


The first step in managing schedule risks is identifying them. That’s where ProjectFlightDeck comes in. ProjectFlightDeck exposes schedule risks. Using advanced Earned Schedule techniques, ProjectFlightDeck detects schedule performance problems, generally before a project is 20% complete. Early detection enables you to correct problems, manage expectations, and avoid project failure. Benefits of our schedule risk analysis.

ProjectFlightDeck breaks from tradition


Traditional techniques fall short for managing schedule risk. Critical Path Method (CPM) estimates are unrealistically optimistic. Monte Carlo simulations are difficult to set up and operate. Per cent complete, bar charts, and the Schedule Performance Index (SPI) are not intended to predict project duration and do not scale predictions based on current performance. ProjectFlightDeck fills the gaps left by traditional techniques. Shortfalls of traditional techniques.

ProjectFlightDeck uses a revolutionary technique


ProjectFlightDeck uses Earned Schedule, an innovative technique with roots in Earned Value Methodology. Unlike traditional techniques, Earned Schedule produces realistic estimates throughout a project’s life-cycle. It’s easy to set up and apply. It uses current performance to predict project duration. Even though it’s new, Earned Schedule has already been proven in theory and practice. Earned Schedule basics.
