Keep your project on time
A powerful and innovative tool for managing projects and schedules easily and quickly – build the schedule correctly, mirror your schedule structure, locate failures, risks and opportunities, and control your project down to the smallest details
Without credit card or commitment
Build a realistic schedule
MS Project lets you write things that don’t work in reality. HCP-Go discovers them, so your project works as it should in real life.
All the issues are on the table
HCP-Go allows you to analyze phases in the project and/or the whole, then quickly get a clear picture of your project, independent of external factors. From now on, it is impossible to hide information from you.
Shortening the schedule
HCP-Go identifies all critical paths and hidden critical paths of the project using a smart algorithm and finds opportunities to shorten the project.
Making decisions for project success
HCP-Go analyzes and presents the likelihood of meeting the schedules, content and budget. Now you can easily draw operative conclusions that will promote the success of the project.

What is HCP-Go?
HCP-Go is an add-on for MS Project that runs HCP analysis on your project easily and quickly.
In a few seconds you will receive a comprehensive report, which reveals all the information that is hidden in the schedule and allows you to understand how the project is defined in the schedule and what is the status of the project. Everything – based on mathematical analysis.
What does the HCP analysis consists of?
Producing an executive summary - what is the likelihood of the project's success?
The mapping of the paths according to HCP with the analytical analysis lets you understand in an instant what is the likelihood of meeting the schedules, content and budget. Project managers testify that the resulting analysis corresponds to their intuition about the project, which until now they have not been able to explain in words and back up with data.
Schedule integrity analysis
A report containing all the guidance required to correctly build the schedule – so that it will be valid in reality and become a real work plan.
Mirroring the project structure
Understand the likelihood of the project being completed on time using the path histogram. See how many long and short paths remain until the end of the project. If we get a “bell curve” – you can be calm, the project can be finished on time. If, on the other hand, we received a “tooth saw” graph – the schedule is incorrect and we must check the findings and correct what is necessary.

The hidden critical paths method (registered patent) was developed by Tal Levanon in the early 2000s. In this method, the network of activities is mapped and analyzed according to its paths, not according to activities.
The duration of the path is defined for each path: the duration of the path will be the total number of working days required for that path. The critical path according to HCP is the longest path in the network.
A hidden critical path is a sequence of activities in the schedule that is slightly shorter in duration than the longest path in the project. Defining the path duration interval (DS – Duration Slack, or HCP interval) of a hidden critical path is the difference between the length of the critical path (longest) and the duration of this path. To avoid risks in the project schedule, these paths must meet their planned target dates, budget and content.
The information we have is only information about the details of the run: who ran it, how long the run lasted, and other system details.
The run files are deleted a week after the run, and recovery is not possible. Therefore, it is highly recommended to save the HCP report on your computer after the run.
For any size. There is no limit.
For everyone involved in the project. The project managers, all project participants i.e. the contractors, the entrepreneurs and schedule consultants.
How did HCP start?
Many years ago, I sat down with some guys and we wrote the schedule for their project. Everyone in the group was from a different field, and together we built a big Gantt. When we were done, I checked the critical path – and some of the professional fields appeared on it.
I decided to check some activities about which there was some confusion: what happens if the activities are delayed a little – a day, two days, a week… on the other hand, there were some that said they could be shortened… so I tried.
I was amazed when every small change caused a complete transformation in the critical path. Areas that were not critical – became critical and vice versa! This thing amazed me – after all, these are just a few small changes that I choose now – and what about all the ones that I did not choose to do? And who are these activities that I don’t suspect at all – and could they be a big problem? And how is it even possible to control a project like this – when the feeling is that we will manage it with a great darkness? And… what solution is there to the whole situation? I discovered that there is no solution – so I created it.
I started the development of the HCP method in my master’s degree in industrial engineering and after graduation I continued to develop the method. As of today, the advantages of the HCP method are in locating problems in the schedule, in reflecting the structure of the schedule (in other words: ‘how the Gantt “sees” the project’) and in finding options to shorten the schedule. HCP has already been implemented in more than 300 projects: Large construction and infrastructure.
I’m sure you’re used to looking for the critical path in Project. You should know that there is a big difference between the HCP and the CPM. The amazing thing is that the two methods do not cancel one another, but they are mutually inclusive!
So, if your project is an iceberg, and you navigate your way around it, when you have HCP-Go, you’ll feel you are no longer navigating in the dark.

A different method from the CPM found in all programs (Project, Primavera and more). The HCP and CPM methods
They don’t exclude each other but complement each other!
