Viewing Tracking Data

Once you have entered in the tracking information, the tracking chart is automatically updated to show the Current Schedule, Low, Base, High, Actual and Forecast tracking data.

Project performance measurement

  • Current Schedule is always visible and represents the start and finish times of the task as entered in the task sheet.
  • Results Low, Base, and High are calculated as part of the probabilistic calculations. Low is associated with minimum, P1, P5, or P10 results depending on setting defined in Options (Calculation tab). Base is associated with the mean. High is associated with the maximum, P90, P95, or P99. If the low, base, and high results are the same, only one base line is drawn.
  • Actual represents the actual progress of the task.
  • Forecast is generated if you do not have the results of probabilistic calculations and you have entered a percentage for task completion, but did not recalculate the project.
