EXEPRON IS UNIQUE and INnovative!
Project Managers - EXEPRON will answer the question everyone is asking…..
“Will the project finish on Time?
During execution, Exepron is forward looking and manages Task and Resource dependency.
Traditional Project Management software records historic or past effort and does not provide the
visibility to effectively manage current and remaining Task durations or Resource contention.
This results in switching task priorities, instability and ever increasing chaos.
What is Critical Chain Project Management?
First introduced by Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt in 1997, Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) is a relatively new, innovative method for planning, scheduling, and managing performance in a project environment based on Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints (TOC). CCPM differs from traditional project management methods such as “PERT” and “Critical Path” (CPM), which relies on completing tasks in a specific order with inflexible scheduling. CCPM is applied in single-project and multi-project environments (PPM – Project Portfolio Management) where resources are shared across multiple projects.
The Critical Chain methodology and CCPM solution includes the following:
Changing harmful behaviors such as bad multitasking, the student syndrome and Parkinson‘s Law that cause delays during project execution.
A Project Network or Project Plan. Task time estimates reflect only the actual touch time, with all safety time or padding time removed. Safety time is automatically calculated and displayed in the Buffers.
A Project Schedule displaying the critical chain and the buffers. The critical chain is the longest chain of task and resource dependency, which includes resolving resource contention.
A Drum, also known as the virtual drum, strategic resource or integration point. In multi-project environments the Drum staggers, synchronizes and schedules the release of projects in the Pipeline.
Buffer Management provides process control and visibility.
The critical chain method includes a single main project buffer inserted at the end of the longest chain of task and resource dependency and a number of feeding buffers inserted at integration points with the critical chain. Buffers provide an effective early warning signal and will pinpoint where task slippage occurs and timely intervention is required.
Using the Critical Chain methodology, resources are applied to the tasks requiring immediate attention with greater flexibility, resulting in keeping projects on schedule, within budget and delivered on time.
