  21. 21. Lessons Learned to Date• Develop and baseline a standard GRC Resource Breakdown Structure for use in all Toolkit tools and templates.• Develop set of RLS templates with standardized WBS/task structures by project category. - Develop standardized list of typical project deliverables and associated BOEs based on mining historic project actuals.• Develop work instructions, guidance, and training for each of the Toolkit modules to assist project teams with successful adoption.• Define a CM process for establishing the integrated cost-schedule baseline, and controlling changes to it.• Provide tailored level of scheduling support for smaller projects.• Solve the detail-level issues to ensure the RLS captures the complete integrated cost-schedule baseline: - Cost basis scheduling vs. obligation basis planning - Prior year un-costed carry-in - Center assessments and service pools - Accounting for “overhead” (e.g. meetings, training, etc.) - Balance RLS standardization (e.g. custom data field use) vs. scheduling flexibilityNational Aeronautics and Space Administration Project Management Challenge 2012 February 23, 2012 21

  24. 24. The Payoff: Why are we doing this? • Improve up front project planning. • Integrate cost, schedule, and technical baselines. • Increase efficiency and hands-on labor savings. • Streamline PPBE process and enable rigorous and faster PPBE responses. • Enable rapid “what if” analysis in response to budget & schedule changes. • Enable rapid, accurate requirement/technical change impact assessments. • Enable quick, accurate, centrally handled data call responses. • Enable true Space Flight Portfolio Management.National Aeronautics and Space Administration 09/26/2011 24
