  • 1. Intelligent Project Acceleration: goal-based acceleration Dr. Dan Patterson | CEO & Founder Acumen
  • 2. 2Agenda� Introductions� Schedule acceleration� Case Study using Fuse 360� Q&A November 17, 2011
  • 3. Acumen: Proven Project Analytics� Project Management Software Company� Improving CPM scheduling & analysis� Thought leader in Analytics� Schedule maturity framework S1 > S5™ Framework Acumen Core Offerings S5: Acumen Fuse® Validate S4: Optimize S3: Risk- S2: Adjust Risk Assessment Workshops Critique S1: Build Software Training
  • 4. 4Fuse 360 Goal-Based Acceleration� Module for Fuse platform� Automated: � Scenario generation Logic Analysis � Acceleration � Decision support Forensic Metric Analysis Analysis November 17, 2011
  • 5. Goal-Based Acceleration Accelerate schedule… by applying criteria …to achieve a given goal
  • 6. 6Acceleration� Planning: Schedule alignment� Execution: Delay recovery� Goal: � Target date � % of remaining duration � Best date possible � Project or activity November 17, 2011
  • 7. Criteria Sets� Drive acceleration Criteria Set � Reduce duration Script � Change calendars “Cleanse & accelerate construction” � Reduce logic lags Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Remove all Filter for Reduce � Remove constraints constraints Construction activities remaining duration by 20%
  • 8. 8How Does it Work?� CPM simulation� Critical path focus� Incremental push� Prioritize � Earliest/latest � Longest durations � Least resistance November 17, 2011
  • 9. Accept or Reject Scenario� Number of days accelerated?� Goal achieved?
  • 10. 10Decision Support� Scenario Insight: � Fuse forensics: what changed? � Fuse analysis: which option?� New plan: � Publish back to Primavera or MS Project November 17, 2011
  • 11. 11Baseline Compliance™� Traditional measures include: � Earned value � % complete � Ahead/behind baseline� Baseline Compliance™ � True measure of how plan is being executed � More than just date comparison November 17, 2011
  • 12. Compliance Scenarios
  • 13. Case Study Baseline Compliance™ Analysis100% 80% 60% 40% 20% 0%
  • 14. 14 Demo Based on case study   Project slipped by 6 months   Acceleration used to recover delay   Result was faster, more achievable planNovember 17, 2011
  • 15. Example 1 Example 2� 2 day project acceleration � 2 day project acceleration� Requires 2 days of reduction � Requires 2 days of reduction� 100% � 67% 2 day activity reduction 2 day activity reduction 1 day activity 3 reduction 2 day project 2 day project acceleration acceleration
  • 16. Fuse 360 SummaryGoal-based Schedule AccelerationBased on true CPM analysisUses yourGenerate alternate scenariosPublish to native scheduling tool Faster schedules through intelligent acceleration Decision support through advanced analytics
