Case Studies on using CCPM

Over 200 of the world's leading companies already apply Critical Chain methods to their projects.  For example:

    Lucent Technologies

      On-time performance through use of CCPM has increased to 90%+

    Harris Semiconductor

      • Applied CCPM for building a new computer chip fabrication plant.
      • Plant will generates $1 million in revenue PER DAY.
      • All product from new plant had to be tested extensively by customers and approved before full production started.
      • There would be no gains if they went fast and sacrificed quality.
      • The plant was completed and had certified product quality acceptance 34 MONTHS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE.


      ($1 million per day) X (34 months) X (30.42 days/month) = $1.03 billion in additional revenue


    ESCO Corporation

      Is completing a conversion project traditionally scheduled at 12 months, but on-track for completion in 9 months


    Saturn, Div. of General Motors

    Habitat for Humanity, New Zealand

      80 people participated in a new world record when CCPM scheduling allowed them to build a 4 bedroom house in 3 hrs, 45 minutes (complete with working plumbing, decorated & painted walls, lawn seeded, picket fence, mailbox, etc.)


    TimePlex Group

    Edwards Air Force Base, U.S. Airforce

    Lord Corporation/Mechanical Products Division, Information Services Group

      Traditionally, projects were 55% longer than estimated.  After CCPM implementation, they achieved:

      • 90%+ on-time performance

      • 60% capacity increase

      • 50% reduction in project durations
