I'm writing an app that track's a project's health. There are several factors that go into deciding how healthy a project is. The three major factors are whether the project is on time, within budget and the burn rate of cash is such that you can finish the project on time and on budget.
But even if a project is on time and within budget, there are other factors that should be taken into consideration that can affect the project's health rating. Here are some:
- Quality of product/service: If the quality of the product or service being delivered turns out to be unacceptable, this will affect a project's health.
- Risks: Any major risk that suddenly comes up has the potential of affecting the project's health.
- Task completion time: Even if tasks are getting completed before their deadline, if the amount of time that they are completed ahead of schedule continues to decrease, there is the risk that eventually the project will be behind schedule. This kind of belongs to "risks" but could be considered separate.
Are there other factors that you can think of that would affect a project's health that I should be aware of?
