The Acumen tool suite: a real added value in the DCMA analysis of your projects and the optimization of your schedules 

Acumen Fuse is one of the preferred tools for producing a DCMA analysis. In 2005, the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) implemented a 14-point schedule assessment to help the Department of Defense evaluate the huge volume of contracts and schedules it was responsible for managing. DCMA’s 14-point schedule assessment has become a widely used guideline and has been incorporated into many software tools, such as Acumen Fuse and Primavera P6. But what exactly does the DCMA 14-point schedule assessment check? Essentially, it assesses whether a schedule is well-constructed and realistic and whether it adheres to a set of best practices that are considered important to the success and management of a project. These best practices are broken down into a list of 14 essential checks.

list of 14 essential checks

  • Logic check: Is the logic complete? Are there any missing links? 
  • Search for negative delays (links): Negative delays are often called “lead time”
  • Searching for lags: DCMA is a little more lenient when it comes to positive lags 
  • Relationships between tasks: It is recommended to use end-to-begin and end-to-end relationships as much as possible.
  • Constraints: because constraints can seriously impact your Monte Carlo analyses, it is recommended not to use them too much. The objective is to work with a dynamic schedule. 
  • Check the total margins 
  • A negative margin is never a good option 
  • Break down important durations to ensure feasibility 
  • Check for invalid dates: avoid actual values in the future! 
  • Set aside funds and resources for your projects.
  • Avoid delays in tasks 
  • Critical path integrity: check the integrity of the critical path of your schedule, looking for its fluidity through a good logical sequence 
  • Critical Path Length Index (CPLI) 
  • Baseline schedule execution index (BEI): The BEI index summarizes the number of activities ahead of or behind the baseline 

Acumen Risk is a preferred tool for managing project risks and uncertainties. It is compatible with Microsoft Project, Oracle Primavera P6, and other project planning tools.
