I believe that non availability of software applications utilizing this technique has prevented it from being adopted..
I would agree with Nabeel. We use Critical Path Method on all our projects.
Except for some Agile projects. We look at critical path, but rarely use the critical path method. According to Mike Cohn, he's never seen a team need a Gantt or PERT chart to figure out the critical path.
I am using it as a tool to manage Agile based initiative. It fits very well for that tipe of initiatives. Some people wrote "critcal path method" but I understood you are talking about Critical Chain which is Goldratt method.
There are a few scheduling tools out there specifically built to support CCPM. I used ProChain a long time back and this site reviews others: http://www.marris-consulting.com/en/points...ftware-solution
A major constraint (no pun intended) for its utilization is the unwillingness of leadership teams to change their mindset and behavior.
It is still a fringe approach which is likely why the volunteer committee who produced the PMBOK Sixth Edition elected to drop it from the Schedule Management knowledge area.
I have recently seen knowledge this method as a requirement to working with some multinationals on projects
I will appreciate if anyone provides a name of a scheduling software utilizing the Critical Chain Method.
One not listed in this chart is Sciforma.com. I have experience with a few of these and am willing to share perspectives.
I view Critical Chain as an evolution based upon Critical Path, one which uses task estimate "safety" in a much more advantageous manner. And it's that technique that I'm asking about.
I see you are using Agile AND Critical Chain -- do you like how that's working out?
