Need a baseline schedule to get started? HITO can help.
We can help you develop the plan, or, take your existing plan, and model it in a schedule. We capture the scope and break it down into the steps required to manage the work. We balance the need for detail against your organization’s needs. Too much detail and no one understands; not enough, and the project schedule doesn’t help management make decisions.
To measure the progress, we resource load the activities with labor, equipment, key quantities, costs, and/or any other custom requirements. From there, we evaluate your planned production and required vs. available resources. An Earned Value Management System can be tailored to the unique job requirements, your existing systems, and job-site work flow.
The critical path will be analyzed and optimized with the resource limitations, and risks identified. We develop a FlipBook schedule animation to illustrate the job-site logistics and areas being worked by each crew. This helps drive your team’s engagement assisting the review and encouraging the team’s buy-in of the plan.
As the plan is finalized and the baseline schedule developed, we document it along the way, providing an execution strategy and baseline justification for submission/archive. At the conclusion of the baseline development, we provide a
- Fully resource loaded baseline schedule,
- Resource and production charts (S-Curves),
- Alignment with your EVMS/Cost System,
- FlipBook Schedule Animation, and
- Baseline Justification / Execution Strategy.
