Project Management the TOC Way (CCPM & 5FS) - Presentation by Philip Marris - Chicago, USA, 16th of July 2019 | TOCICO

Project Management the TOC Way (CCPM & 5FS) - Presentation by Philip Marris - Chicago, USA, 16th of July 2019 | TOCICO | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

The combination of Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) and the Theory of Constraints' 5 Focusing Steps (5FS) enable extraordinary results to be obtained in a very short time. Capacity constraints in project portfolios can be identified immediately (Step 1) and exploited (Step 2) so as to instantaneously produce 2 or 3 times more (productivity & Throughput multiplied by >2).

Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) can simultaneously put all projects under control, provide excellent visibility, reduce project durations by over 40% ... and finish nearly all projects on time. Several recent case studies will be used to provide practical examples. If you think all projects are doomed to be painful semi-faulres, think again. If you are looking to boost your growth you need to boost your project performance, this conference will explain how easy this could be.

Aurora and Aurora CCPM | Advanced Intelligent Planning and Scheduling Solution | Stottler Henke

Aurora and Aurora CCPM | Advanced Intelligent Planning and Scheduling Solution | Stottler Henke | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

Aurora and Aurora-CCPM provide an unfair competitive advantage to clients due to their unique capabilities, including:

  • Multi-project support for huge projects.
  • Ability to perform forward, backward, and mixed mode scheduling.
  • Intelligent scheduling — determine shorter projects.
  • Sophisticated what-if/scenario capabilities.
  • Supports constraints beyond finish-to-start, start-to-start, finish-to-finish & start-to-finish.

 

Additional constraints supported include physical space constraints, which take into account the creation and elimination of the space during the project; ergonomic constraints; and shift-based constraints. Aurora supports complex human classifications, e.g., occupation plus various skills and or certifications, and Aurora optimizes taking these into consideration. Aurora also performs Monte Carlo simulations.

De-stressing New Product Development [using TOC principles] - long article | Vector Consulting Group | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

New Product Development (NPD) is the process adopted by companies to develop new products/models to cater to evolving customer needs. [...] Before the start of any TOC implementation, it is generally observed that due to high prevalence of bad-multitasking at the concept development & evaluation stage, the rate at which projects get confirmed for passing to the developmental stages with approved budgets is very poor. [...] By enforcing the WIP Freeze, TOC tends to define and strengthen the Idea Screening event as the first Hard Gate, [...] The initial WIP freeze, along with application of TOC Flow management principles reduces the bad multi-tasking and increases output of the design and engineering teams in evaluating ideas & creating feasible blueprints/designs for later development. [...] TOC flow management solution avoids making detailed project networks for stages that are due too far in future. ...

[Very] Advanced project scheduling - 9 page article by Sttoler Henke (Aurora CCPM) | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

[...] this paper will look at the following valuable capabilities that are rare or non-existent in other project management / scheduling tools that have proven invaluable to solving many of the world’s most complex scheduling challenges.

  • Ability to capture human scheduler reasoning. [...] so that the scheduling system reacts as a human expert wants it to.
  • Ability to model human resources with details beyond just an occupation, such as occupation plus a set of specializations and/or certifications.
  • Ability to handle less than perfect data sources, [...]
  • Provide a convenient interface for visualizing what tasks can be outsourced [...]
  • Provide an explanation capability that shows the rationale for why every task is scheduled where it is, [...]
  • Provide a robust filtering and highlighting capability, so users can visualize the criteria of interest.
  • Provide robust constraint support beyond the traditional FS, SS, FF, SF constraints found in traditional project management tools.

Concerto Project and Portfolio Management Software | Realization | Critical Chain Project Management | Scoop.it

Concerto’s Planning Module integrates with MS Project so project managers can identify their project’s critical chain and automatically cut and buffer tasks.

Project managers can also examine a schedule What-If by adjusting the quantity of resources available or modifying dependencies. By using Concerto’s Planning Module, managers can determine a project’s most efficient and cost-effective schedule and resource allocation – and communicate it to everyone in the organization. People stop working at cross purposes, and everyone starts pulling in the same direction.

Die meisten Projekte überschreiten versprochene Liefertermine, sprengen das Budget oder liefern Ergebnisse mit Abstrichen in Qualität oder Inhalt. Stress und operative Hektik bestimmen den Alltag; Kunden sind unzufrieden. „Projects that Flow” heißt das Erfolgsrezept der Unternehmen, die erkannt haben, dass mit der Theory of Constraints unter Nutzung klassischer und agiler Konzepte neue Maßstäbe gesetzt und das Muster ständiger Verspätung durchbrochen wird.
