Mitigating Schedule Risk Using NetPoint: Identifying Ways to Get a $1.2B Transit Project Back on Track
February 09, 2016
NetPoint was leveraged to better analyze, understand, and share the delay sources for risk assessment of a complex $1.2 billion transit project that was behind schedule with three years’ of work remaining. NetPoint provided graphic plans for risk assessment reports and the summary plan that enabled stakeholders to visualize the overall picture of the project and how the activities related. This facilitated stakeholder discussions to bring critical and near-critical paths and the use of preferential crew logic to center stage. Several alternatives to mitigate project delay became evident and cruciality of near-critical paths was understood.
