- You have a task: project management
- You built a Gantt in MS Project, or a professional built one for you
- You have a Gantt chart that contains at least several dozen activities (and possibly even hundreds or thousands of activities)
The application that will save you a lot of time will be HCP Go. With the click of a button, the HCP Go app will analyze the schedule and tell you specifically:
#1: Whether or not there are faults in the Gantt
a fault in the Gantt chart is simply a scheduling mistake. It can be an activity with no successor activity, or an activity that is defined to take place prior to successor activities; a mistake can also be a calendar configuration error.
#2: What is a Gantt chart fault and why is it a mistake?
A Gantt chart mistake is something that can exist in a schedule file but not in reality. It can be a typo, an honest mistake that can be repaired easily; however, in most cases, the mistake has a more rooted reason – if you locate it early on – it can save you a great deal of time and put out any fires before they become a catastrophe!
Question: How can I know all of the technical rules? Isn’t there something that can check the technical aspects for me?
Answer: Today we have HCP Go, HCP’s Project addon. With one click, you can analyze your schedule file – and get a free report with your results!
#3: Exact location of faults
The project management application, HCP Go, specifies each and every problematic activity. It is not a general or casual definition but rather a precise actionable list that allows to repair every detail.
#4: What is the project structure?
When a project is mapped by its paths – an overview is generated: for each HCP slack – how many paths were found with this slack? When project management sees the overview, they can easily know: if it has a bell-curve shape (or Gauss, or a normal curve) – then it possible (but not easy) to perform the project! If it looks like a human’s EKG – then it’s not good!
#5: What is the likelihood of my project ending in success in terms of contents, time and money?
When paths are mapped in the project grid, the HCP Go app calculates the likelihood of successful project completion based on the HCP Score and other parameters. This gives you the option of paying attention to weak links in the project – whether the difficulty lies in the timetable or contents? And maybe an excess budget must be reserved or additional resources obtained?
