  • 1. an introduction to Fuse 360Goal-Based Optimization enterprise project analysis Dr Dan Patterson PMP l CEO & Founder Acumen
  • 2. 2Presentation Overview! Company introduction! Introduction to Fuse ! Current project analysis platform ! Fuse 3.0 and Fuse 360! Goal-based optimization! Product demo! Q&ASeptember 22, 2011
  • 3. 3acumen proven project analyticsPassion and dedication tohelping to improve the practice of World Renowned Risk AssessmentCPM scheduling & analysis Workshops! 2o Year+ PPM legacy across multiple industries! Oracle, Deltek & MS partner Oracle Primavera Risk Analysis training! Based in Austin, Texas! Global presence Acumen Fuse & Fuse 360: Enterprise Project Analysis SoftwareSeptember 22, 2011
  • 4. Fuse 3.0 and 360 4next generation analytics! Today, thousands of users benefiting from Fuse ! Schedule, logic, performance, risk, EV analysis ! Wildly successful metric library and editor ! DCMA, Logic density™, Redundancy Index™, Baseline Compliance™, Logic Hotspots™ ! Forensics ! Visualization: Fuse Ribbons™! Launch of Fuse 3.0 and 360 on October 18 ! From application to an analytics platform ! 360 is the first of many analytics modules ! Schedule cleanser, fix MPP, P6 files in Fuse ! New: Goal-based optimizationSeptember 22, 2011
  • 5. 5 Fuse 360 Goal-Based Project OptimizerSeptember 22, 2011
  • 6. 6analysis three modules in one tool! Project Analysis benefit: ! Validate schedule quality, cost forecast accuracy, risk realism Project ! Track project performance Analysis ! Trace/ pinpoint flawed logic ! Conduct forensic analysis about: ! Over 300 industry standard & unique-to-Fuse metrics ! Same capabilities as core Fuse productSeptember 22, 2011
  • 7. 7analysis three modules in one tool! Schedule Cleanser benefit: ! Remove logic complexities ! Eliminate constraints Metric ! Saves days of manual Analysis cleansing about: ! Automatically generate fixed MS Project & Primavera Schedules Schedule ! Compare to original schedule Cleanser & pinpoint impact of cleanseSeptember 22, 2011
  • 8. 8analysis three modules in one tool! Goal-based optimization benefit: ! Create optimized scenarios Forensic Metric ! Achieve schedule Analysis Analysis acceleration in seconds ! Optimization based on your inout ! about: ! Define your own goals & means of achieving them Logic ! Visualize accelerations in Analysis timeline viewSeptember 22, 2011
  • 9. 9goal-based optimization! Objective •  e.g. reduce project duration Set Goal by 3 months ! create an accelerated & optimized schedule •  e.g. focus on engineering ! to adopt intelligent Define activities Criteria principles & criteria! how does it work? •  Generate optimized Run Scenario(s) ! Goals Simulation ! criteria sets •  Use Fuse analytics to understand impact of ! Simulation Analyze optimization Scenarios ! analysisSeptember 22, 2011
  • 10. 10setting acceleration goal! Choose a ! target date ! % acceleration ! Duration acceleration ! Best scenario possible! Optionally cleanse schedule! Apply a set of criteria (grouped into a script)September 22, 2011
  • 11. 11building a criteria set! Define series of steps! Steps contain rules: ! Duration reduction ! Calendar adjustment ! Lag reduction ! Constraint elimination! Set priority ! Earliest/latest ! Longest ! Easiest/least resistance! Optional filters ! e.g. only apply to engineering! Editable libraries ! Shared/mergedSeptember 22, 2011
  • 12. 12run the simulation! Run the acceleration simulation! Fuse applies criteria during each iteration! More & more aggressive “push” during each iteration until either: ! Goal is achieved ! Criteria are exhausted! Manual or automatic granularitySeptember 22, 2011
  • 13. 13accept or reject scenario! number of days accelerated! goal achieved or not?! acceleration efficiencySeptember 22, 2011
  • 14. schedule 14acceleration efficiency™Example 1 Example 2! 2 day project acceleration ! 2 day project acceleration! requires 2 days of reduction ! requires 2 days of reduction! Acceleration Efficiency =2/2 100% ! Acceleration Efficiency=2/3 67% 2 day activity reduction 2 day activity reduction 1 day activity reduction 2 day project 2 day project acceleration accelerationSeptember 22, 2011
  • 15. 15compare scenariosFuse Forensics Fuse Analysis! Identify changes ! Compare schedules! Pinpoint impact of changes ! Run Fuse metrics on scenarios! Defend changes made ! Visualize scenario differencesSeptember 22, 2011
