So what do I do with the results from a Schedule Risk Analysis? – MPUG Live Webinar

July 11, 2018
3-4pm EST

Modern schedule risk analysis tools like Barbecana’s Full Monte make it very easy and quick to run sophisticated risk assessments on your schedule. But how do you interpret the results? How do you know they are meaningful? What can be done to turn pretty histograms into actionable steps to improve your chance of project success? This presentation will briefly introduce Full Monte but then focus on understanding the outputs and how to communicate these to project stakeholders.

January 2015: As part of a move to larger office space, Barbecana has selected Vonage Business Solutions to provide a new phone system that offers complete integration between traditional office, home, and mobile communication systems. As part of this change, our main office number has changed to +1 (281) 971 9825.

November 2014: Barbecana announces the immediate availability of version 1.1 of Full Monte 2014 for P6. This update to Full Monte for P6 schedule risk analysis supports the new Primavera P6 8.4 release from Oracle. One of the changes with Primavera P6 Professional 8.4 is the option to use the SQLite database for standalone installations rather than the resource hungry Oracle XE edition. Full Monte supports schedule risk analysis against Primavera schedules saved to SQL Server, Oracle, or SQLite databases.

August 2014: Barbecana announces the immediate availability of Full Monte 2014 for P6. Full Monte schedule risk analysis (SRA/Monte Carlo Simulation) runs directly against existing Primavera databases (both Oracle and SQL Server), avoiding the headache of exporting data to external systems for analysis and saving uncertainty information directly in the Primavera database. This makes for an extremely fast and cost effective solution for schedule risk analysis with Primavera schedules.

July 2014: Barbecana releases a minor update to Full Monte 2.1 that enhances the popular Tornado style sensitivity chart to include color differentiation between positive and negative influences on the project or milestone outcome. After installing the update, simply create a new report specification called ‘SplitTornado’ based on the existing ‘Tornado (Schedule)’ report.
