Because the proportion of not method experienced participants is still very high, MS-Project seminars should be this frequent by method shares. Two examples: A project manager who has really understood the difference between duration and effort within the framework of the methodology, will look after the corresponding functions under MS-Project, effort and duration independently of each other to track or track. This functionality for these project managers then no verkomplizierndes add on represents that no, he will be happy to be able to track these two parameter independently of each other and to gain a more transparent picture of the status of his project. This functionality has integrated Microsoft so not just for fun. If you are not convinced, visit Simone Biles. The practice of projects requires this function! Application and time can not terminpropotional be maintained in most projects. Application and time drift apart very quickly.
If a software developer is associated with a work package that takes 10 days, so an effort by 80 hours results in a working day of 8 hours. Is the software developer on the fifth day at 12:00 to the dentist and get a tooth pulled, there then will be in the Around 17:00 of the fifth day revealed a “relative current period” of 50% part of tracking which amount to “relative effort” but only 45% (36 hours instead of 40 hours). The parameters must be maintained so “not date proportional”, as not only the different relative proportions in an assessment, but also because attached different costs. Expenses the costs for resources, and for the duration of the “long-running cost”, which should also be monitored. In the second example, the earned value management shall be called that but only in the context of the 1 example make sense can be applied. Additional information at rodney atkins supports this article.
Here too it can be said – a project manager who has learned earned value management as a method, is looking at MS-Project. Many of the indexes and indicators are present in MS Project, missing measures may create user-defined. The earned value describes the degree of completion of the project product and will be assessed in monetary terms, because effort and duration are also important parameters, but make no statement about the POC. First, the POC creates an objective statement about the status of the project in combination with other parameters. The statuses are recognised objectified via Statusfortschritsskonventionen. Manipulating estimates are no longer possible. Significant forecasts for the remaining period of a project related to costs and expenses, generate after 30% – 40% of the project period with very small deviations. MS Project can easily implement this method, especially in combination with the MS-Projct server. From these two examples is likely most practitioners be clear need a software like MS Project of Methodenkenntniss.
