Does your Program Plan include combinations of some of these? Chips, Boards, Chassis, Racks, ASICs? Allocations, BOM, Suppliers, Builds? Firmware, Drivers, Kernel, Datapath, Management, Application? Development, Supply Chain, Ops, Field Support? Bringup, Test, Merge, Integration, Qual, SQA, Compliance? Schedule, Budget, Actuals, Reporting? Agile software on phased hardware? How well does your plan adapt to changes to requirements, ASICs, configurations, allocations, schedule, budget, lead times, supplier delivery, and test failure?
If some of those apply, you may have a problem on your hands. How well do your GANTT/Schedule, Allocations, BOM, Build Plan, Supply Chain, Budget/Actuals plans connect with each other and handle change? This session will overview architecture for quantitative planning using Excel, Access, Project and Visio in ways you probably are not yet using. The methods and tools described give the Program Manager leverage to quantitatively plan and manage the program across involved organizations, while paying attention to program issues and including schedule and finances ultimately to meet program business objectives.

These tools are shown in the context of programs described above but are applicable to many problems requiring quantitative management.
