NetPoint Metrics Capabilities
Understanding scheduling best practices is essential to creating a reliable project schedule. NetPoint 5.2’s Schedule IQ module harnesses these best practices into a solid framework of metrics that can be used to measure and improve the reliability of your schedule. PMA Consultants (PMA) published Core Traits of a Reliable Schedule which came to be the foundation upon which a high quality, reliable schedule could be understood and Schedule IQ implemented.
The development of Core Traits of a Reliable Schedule was an eighteen month effort with over 20 contributing authors. As contributing authors, Tim and Vivek worked with PMA’s PMA’s founder, Dr. Gui Ponce de Leon and top scheduling talent from around the country to develop a detailed, comprehensive approach to creating, progressing, and analyzing a critical path schedule. For each of the 20 Core Traits we drill down to a detailed explanation of what each trait means and what the impact to the quality of the schedule would be if the trait were not properly adhered to. This is the guiding framework for the new schedule metrics functionality in NetPoint 5.2.
