Summary

No longer is the schedule simply used to report past behavior. Instead, the powerful calculations from P6 now provide a forward-facing windscreen view rather than a rear-view mirror. Put another way, P6 will let you drive the bus toward success rather than look behind the bus for collateral damage. P6 can tell a user much more than what is known. P6 delivers decision support data with calculated precision as long as the user understands the algorithms.

In the next chapter, we address what happens when things do not go according to schedule, as we discuss issues and risks.
