Title: Full Monte and Schedule Inspector in the Government Contracting Industry.

Every project manager wants to build a great schedule.  One that is solid structurally and with an excellent chance to be completed on time and within budget.  Two products from Barbecana software assist in these efforts.  Schedule Inspector (SI) provides thorough schedule analysis and will even help correct some of the issues it finds.  Full Monte performs schedule risk analysis, allowing the manager to inform stakeholders of the potential risk to the schedule and what the chances are of meeting a given possible end date.  Mark will talk about his experiences with both Full Monte and SI in the Government Contracting industry.  SI was used to analyze and provide feedback to vendor submitted schedules resulting in better, more realistic schedules.  Full Monte was used to demonstrate to Executive Management that the planned end date was not realistic at a very early stage in the project and provide dates that were more realistic.
