These curves are derived automatically by the mere loading of progress report programmes over time.
The blue defines the planned situation.
The purple defines the work achieved inside the planned envelope.
The red defines the extent of work running behind the plan and what the as-built means for the future in terms of increased resource demand.
It is clear that the demand curve has developed a ‘dumper wave’ shape that far exceeds the planned maximum input.
The software reveals these trends automatically and highlights the dangers progressively.
