1 1402 - Advanced Auditing with Deltek wInsight Banded Reports
Presented by: Mitch Mueller, Lockheed Martin Systems Integration

2  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation
Abstract wInsight Banded Reports offer many new options that enhance advanced auditing. Learn how to create reports, such as Statistics by element VARs, status, owners and other attributes; Data integrity across wInsight units (EOC) and structures (WBS vs IPT); Automating lists; ETC Projection Stability and Validity; and Earned Value Margin of Error.  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation

Agenda Lockheed Martin Systems Integration – Owego Goal: Efficient Reporting for Management by Exception Managing by Exception Report Examples Across Historical Periods Across Future Periods For the Current Element, or for all Selected Elements Across Units Performing Simple Calculations and Highlighting Performing Complex Calculations, Evaluations and Formatting Summary  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation

8 Business Systems Modernization
My Task: Optimize and Integrate Program Management Tools Scope: Legacy Cost Engine Earned Value Management Systems (WBS, EVM, RAM, SOW) Project Schedule Tools (IMP, Critical Path Management) Risk Management Tools (Managing the Known Risks) Risk Modeling (The Known and Unknown Risks, Correlations) and later: Resource Management / Capacity Planning Requirements Management / TPMs IMP - Integrated Management Plan / Integrated Master Plan RAM – Responsibility Assignment Matrix SOW - Scope Of Work / Statement of Work TPM - Technical Performance Measurements WBS - Work Breakdown Structure  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation

The Goal Efficient Reporting for Management by Exception What is Management by Exception? Common Responses: But I already have Earned Value Management requirements! (EVM VARs is a Management by Exception Process) Request to print all Earned Value fields for all WBS elements. Request to copy all the values of all elements and periods to Excel  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation

11 Management By Exception
A specific evaluation of Program reality (or a Program Forecast), compared to a Current and Stable Program Baseline (a Plan under CM). Determine What to Manage (Cost, Schedule, …) Document the Exception Condition: Title and Description Document the Exception Metrics, Criteria and Thresholds Note: Exceptions without Thresholds are just Variances Document all Actions / Management Response (The Purpose) To be useful, measurements must provide a basis for action Measurement without Management Response is only Reporting Document and Create Filters, Views, Reports with Highlighting  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation

12 The Value of Metrics and Reports
Essentially, all models are wrong, but some are useful. George E.P. Box There are no facts, only interpretations. Frederick Nietzsche An approximate answer to the right question is worth a good deal more than the exact answer to an approximate problem. John W. Tukey The only useful function of a statistician is to make predictions, and thus to provide a basis for action. William Edwards Deming  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation

13 Evaluate and Validate all Metrics and Forecasts
Metric Definition Documentation Metric Purpose Management Response Metric Category Performance Metrics (EVM, …) Composition or Health Metrics Process Compliance Metrics Metric Criteria and Thresholds Collection Methods and Frequency Margin of Error Display Historical Trends Use and Criteria Phase Differences Beginning, Middle, Near End Completed, In-progress, Near Term, Long Term Rejection Criteria and Thresholds Forecast Definition Documentation Forecast Purpose Management Response Forecast or Estimate Forecast Algorithms CPI Forecast CPI*SPI Forecast Monte Carlo Completion Dates Margin of Error Display Historical Trends Use and Criteria Phase Differences Beginning, Middle, Near End Completed, In-progress, Near Term, Long Term Rejection Criteria and Thresholds Forecast - to calculate or predict as a result of study and analysis of available pertinent data Projection - an estimate of future possibilities based on a current trend Estimate - estimate implies a judgment, considered or casual, that precedes or takes the place of actual measuring or counting Merriam-Webster  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation

14 Creating wInsight Exception Reports
Starting with a report request or issue: Review the Exception Purpose and Criteria for validity Select Elements Using Exception Criteria and Thresholds Display Requested Attributes of the selected Elements Calculate and Display Requested Attributes of the selected Elements Highlight the Exception Fields (Positive/Negative, H/M/L, Trend↑↓↔) Sort to Prioritize the Exceptions (Ex: Top 10 CV, Top 10 SV, …) Document all criteria and display in the report legend when possible Note: Acquire a Programmer and/or Web Developer proficient in JavaScript  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation

Example 3 – Started late, projected to finish early, but significantly behind schedule!? Time to investigate. Example 4 - VAC includes ETC on completed elements, the concern is when ETCs (NOCs) extend significantly through the future and that they might grow.  2007 Lockheed Martin Corporation
