Say I have a project X that is due to be complete by Date Y Right now we are 10% behind schedule (Should be say 50% and right now 40%), How can I estimate what level of "effort" is required to catch up?
I.E. the original schedule expected 1% of units of work a day to be done, but to catchup to the schedule by some date Z (which is <= Y), we need to work 1.2% units of work a day, I'm looking for a way to identify the 1.2% units part based on an existing schedule.
I'm not sure what this is called but if someone that has editing rights has a better idea for the phrasing, I would be grateful if they could reword it.
Hoping this doesn't make it a "tool recommendation, or shopping question", again reword if it sounds like it, however if you know how to find the above information using tool, can you please provide a "how to" on that tool, this is really what I'm looking for, my project is currently using MS-Project, but I don't think it would be too tricky to insert "start/end dates" into another tool, if it has this feature? I would ultimately like to be able to run a report estimating what "units of work per day" are required to complete the entire project, broken down by tasks that are behind only.
