Scheduling Services using Microsoft Project Online/Professional

Making the jump from Microsoft Project theory to building well-structured Gantt charts can be a big leap. For many organisations it’s often a matter of trial-and-error; a lot of time and effort can be wasted trying to put together Microsoft Project files. Meanwhile, your projects are proceeding in the background and you’re not able to access the breadth of information Microsoft Project can provide when used properly.

Do your projects suffer from any of these common symptoms?
Does your project team have trouble successfully managing the project schedule?
Does your project team complain that the schedule “no longer reflects their plan to finish the project”?
Do your projects tend to finish late, despite the addition of extra resources to finish the work?
Are you not able to accurately predict your resource needs and finish dates?
Do you lack confidence in what your project team reports for progress to-date and project completion?
Is your project team unable to provide acceptable supporting documentation for change order time extensions or delays; resulting in eroded customer trust through unsubstantiated negotiations? Or do you absorb the cost of acceleration or extended overhead and liquidated damages because your schedule was not developed and managed properly to provide you with a valid basis for negotiating time?

Unfortunately, there are many simple errors and mistakes made due to a lack of expertise in planning and schedule development which will lead into the above problems. We help you overcome these.

The most common problem is poorly developed work breakdown structures, (WBS), resulting in poor Gantt Charts, an inability to verify the entire scope of work is reflected in the schedule, and the lack of detail necessary to create reasonable logical relationships.
Another common schedule issue is the excessive use of constraints. This impacts the schedule calculations for determining the “critical path” (longest path) and float values. Unless there is a justifiable reason (external event not in your control) for a constraint, logic should be used to determine the start or finish of an activity.
Many schedules have incomplete logic. This is a common problem and discredits the entire schedule.
Excessive use of start-to-start, (SS) relationships. This is usually due to incomplete WBS decomposition which does not allow the use of relationships to drive work in a logical, reasonable way.
Excessive use of relationship lags. These do not allow an accurate schedule presentation and are usually due to incomplete work decomposition. I even see a lot of negative lags, which is not a recommended or best practice.
Schedules without specific calendars assigned to activities or resources. This limits your ability to accurately model the activity scheduling or control the resource scheduling.
Incorrectly assigned resources or cost.
No logical activity code assignments. This limits your ability to filter, sort and analyze the schedule.

HOW CAN PROVENTURES HELP?

Proventures primary goal is to help our clients manage the scheduling components of their projects using Microsoft Project. We can be your scheduling partner while, at the same time, developing Microsoft Project skills within your organisation.

Alternately, we can provide an end-to-end scheduling service with input from your subject matter experts to develop your plan, identify risks within the schedule and provide updates and reports.

Microsoft Project, unlike many of the Microsoft products, requires training and practice in order to be used effectively. An alternative approach to training is to utilise our team of master schedulers to develop, maintain and report on your schedules.
