What is Schedule Analysis?

A schedule analysis is a detailed evaluation of a project schedule that is conducted to provide insight into the reliability of the schedule forecast dates. Performing a schedule analysis gives us confidence in our project dates. It can also uncover areas of concern that require attention. The bigger the schedule, the more it is to conduct a schedule analysis regularly.

Who is this for?

This service is ideal if you are receiving project schedules from a contractor or sub-contractor and you want to get insight into the validity of the forecast dates. You can also use this service to evaluate your own in-house developed project schedules.

Our Process

1. Validate the Schedule

We first validate that the schedule has been built properly and that progress has been recorded properly.

2. Analyze the Schedule

We then evaluate several schedule health metrics and identify schedule drivers and areas of concern.

3. Produce a Report

A report is then produced that focuses the project manager’s attention to key areas that need attention.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Virtual Consulting Effective?2020-05-28T23:29:58+00:00

Absolutely! Virtual consulting can actually be more effective than face-to-face since we can share screens leading to better collaboration.

What versions of Microsoft Project does Project X-Ray work with?2020-05-28T23:28:21+00:00

Project X-Ray works with Microsoft Project 2013 and newer versions.

Is there any Project X-Ray training available?2020-05-28T23:33:48+00:00

Rather than providing training, we decided to put together a very informative and useful Project X-Ray user manual. You can find this manual in the Document Library under the Resources section of our website.

Do I need to hire Jason for a specific length of time?2020-05-28T23:23:39+00:00

Not at all. No job is too large, and more importantly, no job is too small. I bill in 15 minute increments once we agree on an hourly rate based on the project.

Do you provide customized training options?2020-05-28T23:19:35+00:00

Absolutely! While we have a standard course list, Jason can deliver a custom training solution that covers any scheduling topics that you need. Request more information about customized training options by emailing Jason at jgrabowski@bl-ach.com.

Do you provide in person training options?2020-05-28T23:19:11+00:00

While we only advertise virtual training options, Jason can provide in person training if desired. Request more information about in person training options by emailing Jason at jgrabowski@bl-ach.com.

Do you provide private training?2020-05-28T23:18:16+00:00

Private training options are available. Usually I require a customer to have at least (4) students but exceptions can be made. Request more information about private training options by emailing Jason at jgrabowski@bl-ach.com.

How much does it cost?2020-05-30T18:24:18+00:00

We provide pricing that is tailored to the individual needs of each customer. There is no standard, single price-per-hour for our services. This allows us to support a wide range of customers with a wide range of needs including individuals looking for some one-on-one coaching to organizations that are managing large, complex projects and everything in between.
