Schedule recovery using data driven root cause analysis

High-Level Summary

Challenge:

As this mixed-use residential project moved forward, issues piled up and the project fell more and more behind schedule.
The project team needed to identify the root cause of the problem so they could make effective decisions about how to drive progress forward while minimizing further delays.

Solution:

The team used Disperse progress tracking to identify the root cause of the delays.
They discovered that the learning curve of specific tasks significantly delayed the schedule on the lower floors.
To bring the project back on course, the team split the scope into two:
They created a brand new, recovery schedule for the lower floors affected by the delays and applied the learnings of the original schedule for the upper floors

Disperse helps you see the bigger picture.

With Disperse data, I could determine in a couple of hours which of the 33 floors and 330+ flats were behind, on programme, or ahead of program. I could track where our two key trades (drywall and MEP) had their resources.

With these insights, we decided to ‘bomb’ the lower floors that were struggling badly and moved resources to keep on programme further up the tower. We dealt with the lower apartments with a separate programme and resources.  

I probably could not have arrived at this solution without Disperse.
