Develop reliable schedules
Analyze P6 (.xer) and NetPoint® files to improve results
The Schedule MD module for NetPoint allows project planners and schedulers to develop and analyze schedules for a more reliable project outcome. The innovative features of Schedule MD are designed to provide certainty, a key advantage of project management consulting services. Utilizing Schedule IQ™, an algorithm that scores schedule reliability based on compliance with PMA’s Core Traits of a Reliable Schedule protocol, combined with additional metrics according to the DCMA 14-Point Assessment, project planners can identify and repair the weakest parts of their schedules, resulting in more accurate overall scores.
Schedule MD Capabilities
The Schedule MD metrics libraries offer over 150 metrics including the DCMA 14-Point metrics provided by the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA). Altogether, 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.
