Keeping every member of a project team up-to-date can be arduous. Historically, the production of weekly, or bi-weekly, reports depleted the planning department's valuable time and resources, and reducing this expenditure wasn't possible without significant compromises to project members.
Experience tells us that project schedules persistently overrun. To try and counter this, project professionals must spend the time ensuring the schedule is reliable, meets project requirements, and contains all the necessary work. What’s more, schedules should be built according to acknowledged best practices, such as the US Government Accountability Office’s Schedule Assessment Guide and the DCMA 14 Point Assessment. And health checks are another powerful tool in a project manager's arsenal, used worldwide by many businesses and governments to assess the credibility of the project schedule.
A problem often faced by large-scale projects is how to integrate both owner and contractor schedules into a single, cohesive plan—without granting contractors access to the owner’s IT network.
We are delighted to announce the introduction of Safran Cloud: an on-demand cloud-driven service that provides access to the latest generation of Safran’s project controls applications – Safran Project and Safran Risk – whenever and wherever you need them.
Practised by thousands of individuals across the world, project scheduling is perhaps the most common discipline of project planning and control. Every project in every industry is managed according to a schedule, regardless of size or scale, and the use of scheduling software has become a staple ingredient of project planning. With such significance placed upon scheduling activities, you'd be forgiven for thinking that projects are well-planned and successfully-executed, but research tells us that projects often, even usually, overrun their schedules by some margin.
