The Earned Schedule technique, initially proposed in 2003 by colleague and friend Walt Lipke has changed the Project Management and Control landscape, leading to numerous publications in professional magazines and academic topflag journals (for an overview, look here) as well as in implementations in software tools such as ProTrack.
On Wednesday, November 30, 2013, 280 students had to solve the Mutum Paraná II bridge case study (part B) as part of the course “Project Management” at the faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Ghent University. The aim was to analyse project data and to present the results to the project team of the company in a written report. Below you find some key metrics of their analyses:
Using Simulation in Integrated Project Management and Control
Integrated Project Management and Control (IPM&C), otherwise known as Dynamic Scheduling refers to the integration of baseline scheduling, risk analysis and project control and aims at providing better management control tools to keep projects on track. It focuses on time and cost management of projects in progress and relies on Earned Value Management tools to measure the performance.
Journal of Modern Project Management - Issue 2, 2013
In the new second issue of the Journal of Modern Project Management, a new article titled "Project baseline scheduling: An overview of past experiences" is published. The article is inspired by the work done in the past 10 years and based on the material written in chapters 7 and 8 of the book Dynamic Scheduling. Some of the projects mentioned in this article have been analyzed by ProTrack.
In a previous article written by Kym Henderson “EVM Europe: Plans for 2013”, the fifth anniversary edition of EVM Europe 2013 has been presented to the readers of the Measurable News. In a new article, Kym looks back at the events held in Australia, with keynote speakers familiar to EVM Europe. He also takes the opportunity (again) to promote EVM Europe 2013 and to announce the celebration of the 10th birthday of Earned Schedule.
