Schedule Slippage Per Project

    Schedule Slippage is a project key performance indicator that shows the amount of time a project is delayed (expressed as percentage) comparing with its baseline Start and Finish dates.  Schedule Slippage can be calculated by the following formula:

    Schedule Slippage = (Actual Project Duration – Planned Project Duration / Planned Project Duration) * 100

    The formula for computing Actual Project Duration is as follows:

    Actual Project Duration = Project Actual End Date – Project Actual Start Date

    The formula to calculate Planned Project Duration or the baseline duration is below:

    Planned Project Duration = Project Planned End Date – Project Planned Start Date

    Schedule Slippage metrics helps in identifying the problems of previous projects and making more realistic predictions for future projects. The companies can experience schedule slips to many reasons: large turnover of employees involving in a project, unclear clients’ specifications, estimation problems, etc. In some cases reconsidering project schedule, doing some tasks parallel instead of sequentially or hiring high skill employees for some portion of project tasks may bring your project on track.

    To calculate Schedule Slippage per Project please follow the steps below:

  • Add custom field “Planned Start Date” with code  “cf_planned_start_date” and Type “Date&Time”
  • Schedule Slippage Per Project

  • Add the custom field “Planned End Date” with code “cf_planned_end_date” and Type “Date&Time”
  • Schedule Slippage Per Project

  • Add the custom field “Actual Start Date” with code “with code “cf_actual_start_date” and Type “Date&Time”
  • Schedule Slippage Per Project

  • Add the custom field “Actual End Date” with code “cf_actual_end_date” and Type “Date&Time”
  • Schedule Slippage Per Project

    Note: custom fields with type “Date&Time” will display dates for projects with date and time, e.g. 01/12/2013, 08:00. If you would like to display only date (01/12/2013), you need to select Type “Date” for all four custom fields: “Planned Start Date”, “Planned End Date”, “Actual Start Date” and “Actual End Date”.

  • Add the custom field “Schedule Slippage” with the formula:
  • (($cf_actual_end_date $cf_actual_start_date) ($cf_planned_end_date $cf_planned_start_date)) / ($cf_planned_end_date $cf_planned_start_date) * 100
