Real data

Real project data

We are currently working hard on collecting real data and classifying it into a new commercial project database. The database will contain baseline scheduling data (network, resources, ...), risk analysis data (for Monte-Carlo simulations) and project control data (using EVM and ES metrics). This website is continuously under construction (see history at the bottom of this page) and new data will be added upon availability. Some of the projects are labelled "To Be Completed" since the approval process is still in progress. Other project data are labelled as "confidential" and therefore the project name and company have been removed and time and cost numbers have been rescaled.

Submit your data

In order to further extend our database to carry out current and future research intentions, new project data can be submitted through use of the PMConverter. This software tool allows the conversion of data from a standardized Excel sheet to a ProTrack file. Free demo versions with limited functionality or free fully functional students versions of ProTrack can be ordered here.
 
Below you find a short summary of the data points we need in order to put it in our ever growing database to carry out our current and future research intensions. More detailed information can be found at the PMConverter webpage. The documents that can be downloaded are as follows:
  • Guideline for project data input: Description of the data we need, classified in necessary and additional data points.
    • Data points that are “necessary” refer to inputs we really need since otherwise we cannot analyse the data.
    • Data points that are “additional” refer to inputs we really like to have to support our research, but if you don’t have them, it’s not a major problem.
  • Project data input sheet: Excel sheet where the data can be plugged in. Alternative formats such as txt formats are also welcome but the excel file can be used as a guideline for the way data should be formatted.
  • Project card: Summary card we will make for each project you deliver.
