This refers to a guide published by the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) and used to validate the project schedules of defense contractors. The metrics in the 14-point Schedule Assessment Guide can be applied manually but this is time consuming and prone to error.

Software such as Barbecana’s Schedule Inspector can automate the process, as well as optionally applying additional tests not included in the guide.

Schedule Inspector produces reports in a number of formats, including one designed specifically for the DCMA.

Conformance with the DCMA’s 14-point Schedule Assessment Guide can improve your chance of project success by ensuring that your project network is well constructed, that statusing is done consistently, and that the projected completion date is achievable.
