Step 3 of 3. Save

Method 1. Do you wish to save step 2's calculations? These calculations are viewed by opening this particular calculator addin.

Method 2. Do you wish to save the analysis as comma-separated, column-row, text? This format is amenable to further analysis in standard statistical packages. The text can be downloaded by packaging and downloading this uri.


Step 1

  • Step 1. Monitoring and Evaluation Stage: Some groups may prefer to store all of their baseline, target, and actual indicators results in one analysis. The advantage is that one operation and one input can be used to store benchmark, target, and actual indicator measurements. Other groups may prefer to break the analysis into stages, such as baseline, midterm, and final. The latter requires adding stage-related indicators to specific operations with specific inputs.
  • Step 1. Base Calculations To Analyze: Make sure that the data being analyzed corresponds to outputs.
  • Step 1. Analysis Type: A video overview of these options is available. The Progress 1 option supports Percent Complete and Weighted Milestone analyis. The Statistics 1 option supports Total, Mean, Median, Variance, and Standard Deviation statistics. The Change by Year option supports Total Change, and Percent Change, analysis.

Step 2 and 3

  • Step 2. What If Tag Name: Instructional videos explaining the use of what-if scenario calculations should be viewed before changing or using this parameter.
  • Step 2. Base Resource Calculations To Analyze: Make sure that the calculator chosen has been used with the data being analyzed.
  • Step 2. Compare Using: The Compare Only option uses a calculator's Alternative Type property to further "subdivide" the indicator data being analyzed to support the comparative analysis of alternatives.
  • Step 2. Aggregate Using: Types is the least detailed analysis. Groups is the next most detailed analysis. Labels can be the most detailed, but all of the data being analyzed must have been classified using labels and Work Breakdown Structures.
  • Step 3. Save Using: The Save command saves xml data the Save Text command saves csv data.

Progress 1 Results

  • Partial Target Totals Only: The results show the cumulative totals for each indicator's partial targets. Each indicator is identified by a unique label (preferably a WBS label).
  • Type: The indicator's Alternative Type: benchmark, actual, partialtarget, fulltarget.
  • Actual Total: The actual quantity of the indicator completed during this partial target period.
  • Actual Date: The date of the last 'actual' indicator included in the Actual Total.
  • Benchmark Total: The starting quantity of the indicator prior to any project intervention.
  • Benchmark Percent: (Actual Total / Benchmark Total) * 100. Zero if the Benchmark Total is zero.
  • Partial Target Date: The date of this 'partial target' indicator.
  • Partial Target Total: The target quantity of the indicator for this partial period.
  • Partial Target Percent: (Actual Total / Partial Target Total) * 100. Zero if the Partial Target Total is zero.
  • Full Total: The target quantity of the indicator for the full project period.
  • Full Percent: (Actual Total / Full Total) * 100. Zero if the Full Total is zero. Note that the Actual Total is only for this partial period. Derive the percent for the full target period by adding together all of this indicator's Full Percents.

Change by Year or Label Results

  • Name, Type, Date, Label: Taken from the first indicator with the same label and or year.
  • Benchmark Total: The Benchmark Total is the initial amount of the indicator being measured that has an Target Type property of Benchmark (regardless of the year).
  • Actual Total: The summation of all of the indicators for the same year except for the Benchmark.
  • Benchmark Change: The is measured as Actual Total – Benchmark Total for Year x.
  • Benchmark Percent Change: This is measured as Actual Total / Benchmark Total for Year x.
  • Total Change: This is measured as Year x+1 Total – Year x Total.
  • Total Percent Change: This is measured as Total Change / Year x Total.

Statistics 1 Results

  • Name, Type, Date, Label: Taken from he first indicator. The analysis ignores the type.
  • Observations: The number of observations
  • Total, Mean, Median, Variance, Standard Deviation: Standard sample statistics for the indicators that have been aggregated (using their labels).
