IPA research has shown that having better-defined project schedules at authorization drives better cost and schedule outcomes. Using our schedule database, we have identified specific scheduling practices that drive outcomes for projects less than $250 million. Through these studies, we have also identified the minimum number of activities for some scheduling practices that help achieve better than Industry results.
We also have research that specifies the level of detail required in your schedule for projects at the end of Front-End Loading (FEL) 2 and FEL 3. In addition, we can supply your teams or project controls group sample schedules that reflect the level of detail top performing project systems have in their project schedules at the end of FEL 3.
