The necessity of project schedule updating monitoring statusing
Activity duration updates denotes the passage of time from the start date, not actual work accomplished on the activity Scheduling software will adjust the remaining duration in order to yield the entered percentage complete Estimating a percentage of work or time complete is an inexact science Activity managers and schedulers are accustomed to estimating remaining duration Subjectivity of percent complete estimates becomes more apparent the longer the activity’s duration Statusing progress entails updating either durations or work.

Some of you with architecture background may find Article 2 interesting because it is from the owner’s perspective. It is a pretty thorough description of the owner’s schedule review process, just like Article 2.

However, very little in this article is about “automating”. Article 3 is a short blurp on schedule review from a neutral stand point.
