Beyond The Traditional Project Schedule Management Software

Better Control Over the Scheduling Means Better Control Over the Project

SmartPM Functions

SmartPM Functions

Quality Assurance

Schedule

Assumptions about the project complexity & sequencing should be married to constraints, dependencies and best practices to get an accurate schedule and forecast.

Validate Logic

  • Get project schedule logic insights to focus on risk and preventing issues
  • Automatically extract schedule updates from MS Project and Primavera P6
  • Ensure the schedule is realistic and that the structure is designed correctly
  • Validate the underlying assumptions & downstream impact to the critical path

 

Risk Oversite

Project

Real data & trending patterns within the schedule updates tell much more about the progress, performance and risks during the project than visuals or risk simulations.

Managing  Risks

  • Enforce project controls, contractual accountability and corrective actions
  • Analyze schedule data to dig deeper into the performance reporting
  • Determine the source for project delays, end-date slippage or change decisions needed minimize risks going forward

Delay Analysis

Forensic

Voluminous scheduling change data hides the root  causes of delay; which leads to conflicting opinions. A comprehensive source analysis of the delay along with a simple summary provides for easier accountability and negotiations for settlement.

Reconcile Delay

  • Produce a retrospective analysis into changes, delays and cost overruns
  • Confirm requests for additional time and expense
  • Balance the trade-off between completion date and additional resources

  SmartPM Features

Schedule Quality

Grade the project schedule logic based upon construction industry standards and best practices.

Delay

Identify delays and impacts, in real-time, along with the ability to drill down into the top culprits.

Compression

Identify schedule modifications in forecasted activities that may be artificially compressed from the baseline schedule in order to identify potential schedule manipulations.

Recovery

Identify acceleration efforts embedded within the schedule in order to test schedule feasibility.

Criticality

Address major issues such as; How robust is the critical path? Where are the potential bottlenecks? Are there too many items on the critical path? How likely is the critical path to reach the forecasted end-date?

Weather

Automatically receive historical, local weather data to validate project claims of weather delays.

Forensics

Run analysis at any previous point in the project reporting to analyze trending, reporting, and see where project issues began to develop within the project schedule.

Forecasting

Analyze project schedules for likely scenarios and identify hidden indicators likely to impact the project costing and end-date.
