Forecast Scheduler - Time Modeling
A 'Time Model' requires you to enter the following into your scheduling application: Deliverables, Durations, Dependencies, Deadlines, but no (Start or Finish) Dates. All these start with a 'D', therefore, we also call this '4D-1D scheduling'. It is the leanest and meanest model of a project that will still allow you to forecast it and bring it in on time. Please refer to our White Paper titled 'Proficiency Levels in Project Scheduling' for a detailed explanation of each certificate of competency.
This product consists of a detailed evaluation report of your Microsoft Project Schedule. Optionally, you can add a one-hour, online review of your schedule to this in which the detailed schedule evaluation report will be discussed.
The high-level process is:
1) You buy this product that comes with a digital download in which we provide a list with all Must-Have checks required to pass for a Time model.
2) You check and improve your schedule to meet the checks. We recommend you use our software Forecast Scheduling Application for this; there is a free download (that works for 30 days).
3) You submit your schedule to the email provided in the digital download.
4) You will receive the evaluation report within one week with a Pass or Fail score for your schedule. If your schedule passes, you will receive the certificate with it.
