How it Works

How it Works

Beyond The Traditional Project Schedule Management Software

Better Control Over the Scheduling Means Better Control Over the Project

SmartPM Functions

Schedule Quality Assurance

Trust But Verify

  • Overcomes the typical challenges around project scheduling, percent complete, “Garbage IN, Garbage OUT” and the “Schedule Update Fog of War”

  • Allows you to make your plan, work your plan, and audit your progress with a simple dashboard

  • Provides an early-warning system to easily manage by exception with improved project critical path transparency and accountability

  • Reveals In-depth schedule insights without being a scheduling expert or spend an inordinate amount of time

Project Performance Oversight

Don't Overpay for Performance

  • PDF schedules don’t provide the insights needed to keep the project on time and on budget
  • Gain an understanding of the issues behind the delays, adjustments, additional costs, and end-date slippage
  • Easily drill into schedule updates with easy-to-read analysis of the major changes that will impact the critical path and validity of the end date
  • See the impact of change requests and downstream dependencies in real-time
  • Simplify the project reporting and oversight relationship to improve project visibility and collaboration

Forensic Delay Analysis

Easily Manage Differences

  • Easily validate requests for time and equitable adjustments
  • Simply upload your exported P6 or Microsoft Project data files and project schedule reconciliation.
  • SmartPM connects all the dots for you so you can avoid hiring an expensive scheduling consultants for forensic schedule delay analysis to determine accountability.
  • Gain greater confidence in the project schedule’s veracity
  • Allows for easier collaboration and shared understanding of the project schedule for better dispute avoidance

  Key Insights

Key Insights

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

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.

RECOVERY

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

COMPRESSION

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

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.

PORTFOLIO

Manage all your projects in a single dashboard to enable comparison and context for project trending.
