  3. 3. Background MSFC OSAC – Office of Strategic Analysis & Communications OSAC was created to integrate information between and among the program/project and institutional organizations. CS40 – Performance and Capabilities Management Office Provides support and assistance to sustain capabilities in key competencies such as program planning and control and program/project management. (EVM and Scheduling being the key competency areas…)Taking Care of Business 2
  4. 4. Background Collaborated with Upper Stage Business Office Established a process to format and collect their data Provided tools to transfer data compatible with wInsight Guidance toward a sound WBS and OBS structure Provided training and support for wInsight (e.g., User training, Custom reports and charts, etc.) Enhanced earned value reporting with (elements of cost) options. Once Upper Stage established this process, other Ares elements began to implement it. (e.g., Vehicle Integration, J-2X) After implementing this process with the entire Ares project, data integration was then established.Taking Care of Business 3
  5. 5. Background Collaboration with the Constellation Program Office (CxP) was then established, once the Ares Project Office began to report earned value using the processes provided. CxP then requested the data integration and roll up of all projects at the program level. CS40 worked with the individual projects under Constellation to provide a road map to accomplish the program’s objectives.Taking Care of Business 4

  7. 7. Meeting the Challenges In-House Performance Measurement Process Currently, there is not a fully validated EVM system in-place for projects to use in satisfying the performance requirements placed on NASA and the Constellation Program (CxP). The processes and tools CxP selected will outline a recommended approach that will enable projects to satisfy the requirement of applying EVM principles. The process itself is modular so as to enable it to be applied to any size of project, any type of earned value engine, and can be used with any type of financial system in place. It is also flexible enough so as the contract, program or project grows the process will be able to accommodate this growth with little or no impact to the work currently in progress.Taking Care of Business 6
  8. 8. Meeting the Challenges CxP EVM Data Analysis and Integration One of Constellation’s goals was to be able to integrate, view, and analyze both the in-house effort and contractor’s data. This is being achieved by working with the contractors and the NASA leads to define parameters in the WBS and OBS structures along with the different elements of cost. Contractor’s data and in-house data are being integrated and rolled-up at the project level. The data from the various projects, including in-house and contractor data, are being rolled-up to the Program level. This gives Constellation the ability to have a one-stop shop for consolidated reporting and analysis of the various projects and elements.Taking Care of Business 7

  12. 12. Meeting the Challenges Tools Selected The tools selection involved a mix of COTS (wInsight and Cobra) and internally developed software (XML Connect) by Constellation support personnel. The knowledge and experience gained from the support and guidance of other projects led to additional insight into Constellation’s challenges. Training Provided Training established to help bring CxP up to speed on EVM, Scheduling and specific tools that were needed to meet their specific needs. Reports Created Custom reporting requirements were outlined and defined providing CxP with a clear direction for communication.Taking Care of Business 11
  13. 13. Tools for Success XML Connect XML Connect is an Excel based program designed to transfer raw EVM data into wInsight. XML Connect was designed for use by NASA programs or projects that do not have a EV management system to enter Earned Value information into wInsight. Deltek wInsight * Deltek wInsight™ is used for analyzing, sharing, and reporting earned value management data. wInsights standard set of reports provide early warning indicators to quickly identify variances in project performance, enabling organizations to proactively identify potential problems before they occur.

  15. 15. Tools for Success CxP Monthly Program Review Report Generator * The MPR Report Generator was developed so that all projects that reported to the Constellation Program (CxP) could provide EVM data from wInsight into a PowerPoint Presentation automatically. Program defined format. Deltek Cobra * Deltek Cobra is a project costs management tool, measuring earned value, and analyzing budgets, actuals and forecasts. It offers seamless integration with leading scheduling tools and unmatched flexibility to meet even the most exacting cost management requirements. NASA 5-Page Analysis Report Internally developed Excel based workbook that pulls data from wInsight and produces a customized PowerPoint Presentation based on certain earned value thresholds and other criteria that communicate the status of a contract, program or project.

  16. 16. Tools for Success Deltek wInsight - Background Initially wInsight was setup at MSFC in 2000 to support MSFC projects Chosen as Analysis and Reporting tool by ESMD in 2003 • wInsight can easily import contractor’s EVM reports - Contractor Performance Reports (CPR) in the form of xml, or x12 transaction set. • wInsight is the tool of choice for Government Agencies and Contractors performing Earned Value Management (EVM) analysis and reporting on programs, projects and contracts with EVM requirements. The one database serves as a reservoir or ‘one stop shop’ for the Agency’s EVM data; • Rollup reporting can be accomplished • Historical reference for data mining, such as cost estimates; • One administrator for the Agency instead of multiple ones for different projects and Centers. • Ensures the safeguarding of the data with daily backups of the data for the Agency. Currently, the wInsight database resides at the CxPO ICE (ICE) and is being used by multiple NASA projects.Taking Care of Business 15

  24. 24. CxP Report Generator Artificial Intelligence Report• This element represents 100.0 percent of the total contract.• Earned value data indicates that this effort is about 32.94% complete.• Work in process is behind schedule.• A significant amount of management reserve was allocated this period.• Beware of problems in this element; the budget has been increasing routinely.• Period actuals are running at 1,707.0.• There has been a significant increase in the rate of expenditures recently.• This effort has an unfavorable cost variance of -7.28%.• Performance is holding relatively steady at 0.932 per unit expended (Dollars).Taking Care of Business 23
  25. 25. Conclusion Constellation: meeting the challenges 1. Meet the EVM requirements set forth by the ANSI/EIA-748 and lay the ground work for a future validated Earned Value Management System. 2. Provide the tools needed to more efficiently produce the needed data and identify where concerns are in the life cycle of a contract, project or program. 3. Training the management and the projects in earned value and tools specific to meet the challenges. 4. Build a process that will help the Constellation Program or any other NASA Program reach the ultimate goal of having a fully validated EVM system.Taking Care of Business 24
