Multi-Project Critical Chain Project Management with Intelligent Scheduling

By using sophisticated scheduling software as the underpinnings for Critical Chain reasoning, Aurora-CCPM can be applied to projects encompassing thousands of heavily constrained tasks and requiring hundreds of different kinds of resources. Giving the Critical Chain method such a solid scheduling basis also allows it to more easily handle complex situations such as new tasks being inserted during the actual plan execution, as well as other radical changes to the situation.

Features and Benefits

By adding Critical Chain Project Management to an already powerful and sophisticated scheduling software, Aurora-CCPM provides two important additional benefits:

  • Better Critical Chain (one that can potentially be worked in less time)
  • More flexibility and an improved ability to accomodate change

Enterprise Solutions

Aurora-CCPM provides enterprise solutions not otherwise available:

  • Boeing uses Aurora-CCPM because no other product could meet its Critical Chain needs
  • Large-project modeling is possible and more efficient
  • Large multi-project environments can be modeled
  • Short duration critical chain

Datasheet for Air Force Space Operations Support

Attempts to automate and optimize resource management and beams scheduling of a ground network of antennas for concurrent links to multiple satellites has not been very successful, especially for a very large global antenna network like the Air Force Satellite Control Network.


Datasheet for Mission Impact Assessment for Known Space System Threats

Mission impact assessment seeks to determine the effects of space system threats and needs to be more sophisticated than simple checklist-based courses of action in service today because multiple simultaneous events may necessitate non-linear combinations of time-phased responses.


Boeing Deploys Advanced Scheduling Software Developed by Stottler Henke to Facilitate Assembly of Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Note that the items discussed, including tooling, scaffolding, people, the changing amounts of physical space during production all have to be modeled and intelligently optimized to maximize the efficiency of aircraft production. Aurora is a configurable scheduling engine that enables organizations to plug in components that provide the domain-specific expertise needed for each unique type of scheduling task.
