What is the PMO Dashboard?
The PMO Dashboard provides you with the ability to establish a variety of key performance indicators relating to your projects, including:
Recognised revenue: This calculates how much of the revenue due to be earned has been recognized so far. If the Project’s Billing Type = Fixed Price, this is calculated based on Completion % * Hours Scheduled Value (Billable), otherwise it references the ‘Hours Completed Value (Billable)’.
CPI: This indicator identifies how the Project, Milestone or Action is performing against the scheduled revenue. The higher the score, the better you’re performing (e.g. you’re delivering the work more efficiently than you scheduled it to be delivered).
SPI: This indicator identifies how the Project, Milestone or Action is performing against the scheduled timeline. The higher the score, the better you’re performing. For example, you’re delivering the work quicker than it was scheduled to be delivered.
CPI / SPI breakpoints: The CPI and SPI values will be colored red, amber, or green based on the breakpoints you have set. These breakpoints can be set on the Mission Control Console Page in the ‘Project Automation’ section.
Note: the PMO Dashboard will only include Projects where the ‘Display on PMO Dashboard’ checkbox is ticked on the Project Detail page.
