Schedule IQ Score

The Schedule IQ™ Score is the most comprehensive schedule reliability rating system on the market. It is based on 42 individual metrics derived from the industry-leading Core Traits of a Reliable Schedule. Scores are reported from 0 to 100 and provided for the overall schedule as well as for four categories: comprehensive, credible, well-built, and controlled. As a result, reliability can be assessed at both macro and micro levels.

Schedule MD

42 Metrics

The Schedule IQ™ Score considers logic, constraints, float, the critical path, relationships, durations, progress, forensics, resources, WBS assignments, risk, weather, earned value, and calendars.

Smart IQ Thresholds

IQ scores adjusts internally based on the progress and level of your schedule. For example, the logic index for a level 2 schedule should be lower than that for a level 3 schedule, and Schedule MD™ accounts for that.

Metrics Libraries

Metrics Libraries

Metrics libraries offer over 150 metrics including the 14-Point Assessment metrics by the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA). All together, they cover areas including logic, constraints, float, the critical path, relationships, durations, progress, forensics, resources, WBS assignments, risk, weather, earned value, calendars, and many more.

DCMA 14-Point Assessment

View dashboard widgets, find matching activities and deficiencies, and export a DCMA report to Excel. Thresholds and definitions come pre-defined making it easy to start analyzing and interpreting results.

Activity Tracing

Launch the Metrics Manager™ from within NetPoint to see where activities are in the network and how modifications to the schedule affect metrics in real-time.

And More

  • In-app metrics dictionary
  • Visual dashboard widgets

 

Excel Reporting

Reporting is a fundamental feature of the Metrics Manager™ and an integral part of any metrics analysis. All table-based data can be customized and exported to Excel, making it easy to export any detail desired. Plus, a set of predefined executive reports are included for summarizing results and communicating the big picture.

Excel Reporting

Tabular Data

Drag and drop to add, remove, and rearrange columns; query any text field using universal search; and enlarge any table to make metrics data easier to work with.

Excel Integration

Choose from four print-friendly, pre-formatted Excel reports for summarizing metrics and IQ data, including the Summary Report, the IQ Report, the DCMA Report, and the Deficiency Report.

Deficiency Reports

View activities by the number of metrics they are violating, organized as a tornado diagram from highest to lowest, making it easy to focus on the most problematic activities.


 

Weather Analysis

Weather Analysis

The Metrics Manager™ includes a one-of-a-kind feature-set for planning and analyzing normal and actual weather. NOAA integration makes it easy to find and download global historical weather data, and key metrics allow you to evaluate how weather has been accounted for in your schedules.

10-year Weather Averages

View average monthly weather data for temperature, precipitation, and wind for thousands of weather stations across the world.

Observed Weather

Download actual observed weather on a monthly basis for weather submittals or forensic analysis.

And More

  • Weather-based metrics

 

Schedule Review Tools

The Metrics Manager™ includes a number of tools for reviewing schedule submittals, including checklists for verifying that the narrative document conforms to best practices and scores accordingly. It also provides the ability to record and document stakeholder approval, making schedule sign-offs more transparent.

Schedule Review Tools

Narrative Checklists

Unique checklists tailored to unprogressed baselines, revised baselines, and updates, including up to 47 checks spread across 8 categories.

Stakeholder Signatures

Stakeholder names and roles, as well as comments on signatures are linked to targets, making it easy to see which version of the schedule stakeholders have signed-off on.
