Time: the bright side of the iron triangle
Time is one side of the so-called project management ‘iron triangle’ by which the success of a project is superficially measured. Cost and quality complete the trio. It’s interesting to see time elevated to the same level as the other constraints when it is the most predictable but the least manageable of the three.
Resource optimisation for successful project outcomes
Current critical path method (CPM) scheduling fails to deliver successful project outcomes, in part because the automatic resource levelling systems in most tools, most of the time, produce sub-optimal results and changing a few settings in any of the tools can produce wildly different outcomes.
