Delayed Projects

.

Delayed Projects

The Number of Projects Delayed in the Current Portfolio of Projects in SmartPM. A Delayed Project is a project where the current planned completion date of the project is on a later date than the planned completion date in the projects assigned “baseline” schedule.

Projects with low quality schedules

.

Projects with Low Schedule Quality
The Number of Projects with Low Quality Schedules in the Current Portfolio of Projects in SmartPM. A Low Quality Schedule is a schedule that has a C or lower “grade” as compared to the customizable DCMA driven schedule quality index set up by the user.

Projects that need new schedules

.

Projects that need new schedules

The number of projects that need new schedules – or have not received an updated schedule since a month prior to the current date.

Projects on track

.

Projects on track
The number of projects on track in the current portfolio of projects in SmartPM. An "on track project" is defined as a project that has a current planned completion date on a date before the planned completion date of the current projects “assigned” baseline schedule.

Project Name

Project Name

Title of Project's Scenario Base

.

the title of the Project's Scenario Base
The title of the Projects Scenario "August 2015 Baseline" – is the name given to the scenario that the user has set to be present on the dashboard.

Days Delayed

.

current number of days late

The current number of calendar days that a project's end date is delayed as compared to the planned completion date of the project's assigned baseline schedule.

Data Dates

.

Data Dates

Data Date is the status date of the most recent schedule update imported into SmartPM for a specific project.

Baseline End Date is the end date in your baseline schedule.

Current End Date is the end date in your most current schedule

Project Health Metric

.

The project health metric is a gauge of overall project health taking into account the other project performance and risk metrics visible on the dashboard- including schedule quality, feasibility, progress delay and historical performance.

Schedule Performance Index

.

Schedule Delay- SPI

The Schedule Delay Section of the dashboard houses the KPI’s related to performance including Planned vs Actual, Schedule Performance Index (SPI), Critical Path Delay (if any), and Planned Future Acceleration as per the latest schedule update.

Critical Path Delay

.

The Critical Path Delay Metric is a calculation of total cumulative critical path delay a project has suffered, as quantified in each update period and added together over time.

Future Acceleration/Recovery

.

Future Recovery

The Future Acceleration Metric is a calculation of the total cumulative acceleration that has been built into the schedule through the contemporaneous project updates, as quantified in each update period and added up over time.

Schedule Quality

.

Schedule Quality

The Schedule Quality Grade is a gauge of the structural integrity of a project schedule, using a customized scoring model that leverages the DCMA methodology.

Schedule Compression

.

Schedule Compression

The Schedule Compression Index is a comparison of compression that has been built into a schedule at a given point in time – as compared to the original baseline schedule

Forecasted Completion

Forecasted Completion

The forecasted completion date is SmartPM's estimated completion date if your performance continues as is. SmartPM looks at performance, compression, and delays, in order to determine how far off your current scheduled completion date.

This should be seen as a metric to help you determine if your schedule is overly aggressive or if you have feasible recovery (acceleration) plans in place to get your end date inline with your current scheduled end date.

Add Schedule

.

Add New Schedule

The Add New Project button enables the user to add a new project by importing a new project schedule, deeming it the “baseline” schedule.

View Trends

View Trends- Graphs

Trends provides access to key schedule performance metrics over time, allowing users to detect departures from the plan and identify warning signs before a project takes a turn for the worse.

Summary Report

.

Summary Report
The Summary Report link, when clicked, results in a summary level report (1 pager) popping up on the screen that houses a detailed analysis of performance in the last update period in a condensed format. In this report, the user will be able to assess performance, delay and compression on multiple project milestones, be able to view a planned versus actual performance curve as well as a future planned versus predictive performance curves. In addition, critical path delays and recovery activities will be highlighted, for the previous update period.

SmartPM Report

.

SmartPM Report

The SmartPM Report is an executive summary of the project to date that empowers you with the information you need in order to have the appropriate conversation with your leadership team or contractors.

OAC meetings are more efficient, productive and meaningful with the SmartPM Report.

Filter

.

Filter

The filter toggle enables the user to set up filters on the dashboard to show a subset of projects based on the filters criteria.

Add New Project

.

Add NEw Project

The Add New Project button enables the user to add a new project by importing a new project schedule, deeming it the “baseline” schedule.

Quality Checker

Schedule Quality Checker

The schedule quality checker is a tool that you can load any schedule into to get your schedule's quality without having to load it into a project. This will give customers the ability to "check" their schedules and fix them before actually incorporating them into their project for the whole world to see. The Schedule Quality checker includes the Schedule Quality Excel Export and PDF print off of the schedule quality tab.

Schedule Quality

 

The schedule quality metric evaluates the structural integrity of you schedule and takes into factor key industry standard metrics to determine whether or not the schedule is structurally sound and feasible.

This metric is key to ensure that your project’s schedule is sufficient to manage the project. It is important to review the Schedule Quality throughout the entire project to ensure that the integrity is not compromised as the project progresses increasing the risk of delays and overruns.

Critical Path Delay

Identifying Historical Critical Path and calculating is one of the most challenging calculations in all of construction and we have automated it!

This metric tells you how many days of actual critical path delay the project has suffered to date.  Behind this metric is an in depth delay analysis complete with a delay table and schedule summary that review, analyze and/or drill down on.

Recovery

 

The future recovery of a schedule captures the remediation efforts that have been put in place by the scheduler in order to recover time from the delays that have occurred thus far and bring the project completion date back in.

This is done by manipulating activity durations and logical structure of the schedule. It is very important to validate this feasibility of these changes in order to not jeopardize the future of the project.

Audit Log           Critical Changes

End-Date Variance

The end date variance of a schedule captures the diversion of the current schedule completion date from the baseline schedule completion date.

If the schedule was to progress as shown in the latest schedule update, the schedule will complete this many days later than originally planned.

Compression

The schedule compression captures the amount of effort remaining in the schedule as compared to the baseline.

A high schedule compression reduces the feasibility of completing the project on time, unless realistic future recovery has been put in place

Scheduled vs. Forecasted

Completion Dates

SmartPM's forecasted completion date uses a proprietary AI based algorithm based on current progress to give a realistic estimate of what the completion date of the schedule should be given things progress as they have thus far.

The scheduled completion date shows the completion date based on the current schedule update.
