Project Risk Analysis:

Most large corporations or large projects require project risk analysis to verify
feasibility of the project. Whether the project is time or resource sensitive, risk
analysis helps identify problem
areas and help formulate a
mitigation plan. Here is why you
need a risk analysis:

7.1. To verify project logic and


design. Identify common
scheduling pitfalls that may
result in misleading schedule
or risk analysis results.

7.2. To verify whether the plan


is practical based on
identified risk events.

7.3. To pinpoint likelihood of


finishing project on-time and
on-budget.

7.4. To identify key risk drivers based on criticality, risk sensitivity and/or duration
sensitivity

7.5. To reformulate project logic / sequencing based on risk analysis results


7.6. To identify minimum, most likely, and maximum task durations based on
three point estimate.

7.7. Model both qualitatively and quantitatively positive and negative risk events
(threats and opportunities)

7.8. To design a mitigation plan for possible risk events

7.9. To report on project likelihood of completing on-time and on-budget based on


both pre-mitigated and post-mitigated schedule

8.0. To develop a list of risk events and mitigation strategies to monitor throughout
execution of the project.

8.1. To help interested parties


correct expectations
regarding project
deliverables

8.2. Determine confidence


levels regarding project cost and
schedule success.

8.3. Determine confidence


levels, P-schedules and quick
determination of contingency.

8.4. Identify key risk drivers.


Find out what task or risk event
is causing your schedule to not
perform as expected.

8.5. Determine the combined probability of achieving both given budgets and
completion dates together.

8.6. ‘what if…' analysis by interactively varying cost and schedule thresholds to
reveal the resultant chance of success.

8.7. Compare scenarios and determine the cost/benefit ratio of selected mitigation
plans.

Master Schedule

The master schedule shows all the activities in your project. The CPM (Critical Path
Method) activity bars, progress bars, and activity bars with floats clearly show you the
status of each activity.

Target/Baseline Schedule
The Target/baseline Schedule helps each stakeholder and team member quickly see
where they are now, compared to where they should be. Multiple targets/baselines can
be established throughout the project lifetime. When compared with the primary
target/baseline, you can determine true health of the project; the achievements, the
failures, and the problems. This provides legitimacy to change order requests, extra
payment requests, etc.

Pert Schedule

The Pert view helps you quickly evaluate, track, and adjust your network logic. It's a
great tool to have a bird-eye-view of your logic.

Gantt/Bar Charts

The Gantt/Bar chart view also helps you evaluate, track, and adjust your network logic.
It's another tool for improving project quality.

Resource

Resource Loading Reports

These reports provide information concerning proper allocation and utilization of project
resources. Are you 'redlined?' You can determine if you have the necessary resources
to complete the project on time. We suggest, three minimum project baselines to
control the project schedule, resources, and its scope.

Costs

Cost Loading Reports

Observe total cost of the project or easily determine the total cost incurred at any given
point in time. Also provides you information on difference between planned and actual
cost.

Cash Flow Analysis

Cash flow analysis report helps you determine future projections of your project cash
flow. This report is critical for securing adequate amount of funding to properly execute
the project.

Variance

Schedule Variance Report

Monitor your schedule performance by observing any noticeable differences between


what you planned and where you stand today.

Budget Variance Report

Keep track of your budget performance by viewing significant differences between what
you planned and what you actually spent.
Status Report
We compile for you a weekly or monthly status report. The report tracks items, such as,
meetings minutes, problems discussed, solutions proposed, and other general
information for the stakeholders and project team members.

Change Management
Using project management software, we can help you manage changes in your
project when they occur. We can also help you determine how these changes
affect the schedule and its cost. With this information in hand, you can answer
the question, 'Do we need extra time and funding to complete the work?'

Conflict Resolution
We can help you analyze the project problems and conflicts. If necessary, we
assist you and your legal team by reconstructing important schedule and cost
information to build your case. With the historical information in hand, we can
build a project schedule even after significant progress on the project has
occurred. We can then analyze the schedule variance and other information like
project cost, cost variance, and earned value.

Coding of Accounts
If you need help establishing a Code of Accounts, we can assist. Using a coding
feature, we can help you predict if more time or funding is required for your
project; even help you determine which activities need a special attention.

Monthly Updates

We can perform monthly update of actual work completed. We can collect this
information directly from the department manager, engineers, PM, or from
interim payment certificates.

Project Schedule Quality Assurance

A good schedule is a true representation of a good plan; if done correctly determines the
success of a project. In order to execute a good plan, a good schedule is essential.
Although putting a schedule together is not difficult, but having a high quality schedule
that is practical is rare. There are many experienced schedulers in the industry, but a
very few proactive ones to learn and build up a sufficient knowledge to put together a
top quality schedule.
Since quality of schedule is key to the success and failure of a project, the need for
having a system to determine the quality throughout schedule development,
maintenance, and execution holds prime importance. To bring your organization
excellence in scheduling, we brought together some of the few top ranking schedulers to
build a system to thoroughly check the quality of a schedule using our proprietary 200
point check system. The
system gives us ability to
point out weak areas in
your schedule and provide
you with suggestions how
to improve its quality.

So, before you submit a


schedule for approval to
corporate, create a
baseline or execute the
project, let us review your
schedule and make
suggestions; this will make
all the difference for you
between a successful
project that is on-time and
on-budget than the one
that would reflect bad on
your career.

We have reviewed hundreds of schedules and found a very few that are up to par. Most
schedules we reviewed had critical flaws if discovered later could have failed the project
miserably.

We provide our clients with solid suggestions how to improve the logic and functionality
of a schedule to make it more realistic and practical. Our suggestions have made a huge
difference in how the client planned to conduct the project and completed the project
successfully.

In addition to schedule quality review, we can also conduct project risk analysis on your
schedule to bring your attention to risks outside the schedule that may affect adversely
on your project. We help you formulate mitigation strategies to reduce/eliminate risk
impact. We guide you how to continuously monitor the mitigation plan and how to keep
your risk register updated.

Let us show you how we review your schedule and why such review is essential.

So, contact us for a review of your schedule today. We can do this online within a few
days on a minimal budget.
