UniPhi 17 - Collaborating around deliverables

Back to Blogs

UniPhi Software, 27 May 2021

The new earned value feature against deliverables (a future blog post) led to the development of todays new UniPhi 17 feature, collaborating around contract deliverables. When assessing the "earned value" of a deliverable, it's important to look for evidence of the progress being claimed. So for example if your deliverable is to issue engineering design drawings of some sort and this deliverable has a 40% stage gate for when the draft is issued for interdisciplinary review, we thought it would be nice if we could link this draft to the deliverable when you claim the EV. 

The end result - comments against deliverables. 

This will potentially remove the double up that would occur in UniPhi 16 (and before) where users would create issues/activities in the issues/activities module that were the same as the contract deliverable in the contracts module so that they could collaborate around the item at hand. 

This feature will evolve over time to become richer and more rewarding but at the moment this is how it works: From any sub-nav that displays deliverables in the contracts module, a project manager can click on the comments icon and they will be taken to the screen below: 


Team members will also be able to add comments and see documentation via the timesheet module:

Then when reviewing earned value for a deliverable all the PM needs to do is click on the comments link and voilà, there's evidence supporting their 40% claim. Over time, we'll provide machine learning that can automate this claim process and/or highlight false claims where no draft document exists but for now, hopefully, the transparency is enough to get real value out of the earned value stats and probably even more beneficial, project team members will be able to share information faster and more effectively.

We'll be demonstrating earned value in two weeks (June 8th) at our third UniPhi 17 webinar. Register now.
