Schedule Feasibility & Compression

The Schedule Feasibility section provides a window into the health of the Project and feasibility of the plan moving forward.

  • The Schedule Compression captures the amount of effort remaining in the schedule as compared to the baseline.
    • Good compression is 0%-14%
    • An okay compression is 15%-24%
    • A bad compression is >25%
  • Examples of Compression and Decompression are as follows






  • SmartPM’s™ Forecasted Completion date uses a proprietary algorithm utilizing current progress to give a realistic estimate of what the completion date of the schedule should be given things progress as they have thus far. The scheduled completion date shows the completion date based on the current schedule update

User Note: Forecast Completion date will not populate until the project is approximately 50% complete.
