Progress Pro gives project managers the earliest possible early warning of likely late finiish or early finish—while there is time to take action. The Excel-based tracking system requires no background in statistics .

• Finish time-critical projects on time with the power of statistical process control.
• Excel-based system makes process control tracking easy, even for those with little or no background in statistics.

## Progress Tracking With Statistical Process Control

The progress plot is similar to statistical process-control charts used in manufacturing. The chart puts current progress into historical context, while serving as a focus for discussion by project team and senior leaders alike.

To set up project tracking, Progress Pro takes input data from a PERT-like task analysis: A simple list of critical path project tasks, along with the project managers estimates of task times. Progress Pro ships with an example project showing how to set up a projecdt and then track progress throughout project life

## Process Control Charting Made Easy

Statistical control charts of this kind have been used uin project management since 1988, when the idea first appeared in IEEE Management . Until now, however, only a very few project managers used them—for a good reason. This is because setting up a control chart called for a good knowledge of probability theory and other mathematics. Now, however, Project Progress Pro puts process control tracking in reach of everyone, even those with very little background in statistics or math.

The Excel-based tool requires only a few very simple inputs, beginning with just the number of critical path tasks and an estimated most likely time for each. Project Progress Pro does the rest, setting up the chart structure, placing the control lines, and plotting your actual progress against the original plan.

Progress Pro tracks projects with up to 12 critical path tasks. Progress Pro works best with Microsoft Excel on Apple Macintosh and Windows PCs.

For more on theory, and practical use of statistical control charts for projects tracking, see the original IEEE Managementarticle, Statistical Quality Control for Project Progress Charting.

Progress Pro tracks projects with up to 12 critical path tasks. Progress Pro works best with Microsoft Excel 2007 or later, on Apple Macintosh and Windows PCs.
