- Responsibility Schedule
The Responsibility Schedule builds on the CPM Master Schedule ... and shows who is
responsible for each activity. These can be grouped by individual, department,
phase, project, etc. It is important to note, that not just one project has to be
shown at a time ... all of the projects, resources and cash flows can also be shown.
- Target Schedule
The Target Schedule helps each stakeholder and team member quickly see where they
are now, compared to where they should be. Base Lines are important. Multiple
targets can be archived throughout the project life. Each one, from the beginning
baseline, can tell the true story of the project ... its success stories ... its true
problems. This can equate to legitimate requests for change orders, extra payment.
- Resource Report
Check on your the allocation and status of project resources. Are you
'redlined?' You can determine if you have what it takes to complete the project on
time. After all, project management requires scheduling, but it is much, much more.
We suggest, as the three minimum project baselines, that you control the project
schedule, resources and scope.
- Budget vs. Actual ... Variance ... Earned Value ... and More ......
Know where you stand on the budget. Do you have a notable difference
between what you planned and where you are 'today?'
- Cash Flow
Make projections of you project cash flow ... you can take it to the bank.
- Status Report
A weekly or monthly status report discussed things like meetings held and
their minutes, problems encountered and problem resolution, general information to the
stakeholders and project team members.
