Milestone Trend Analysis: How it Works
Milestone Trend Analysis (MTA) is very popular with project managers because it enables them to easily visualize how milestones are progressing over time. MTA is an easy-to-read combination of the history and prognosis of selected project milestones. It is used to graphically illustrate time-related discrepancies.
When milestones are updated, the completion dates are reforecast according to the progression of the project. Connecting the interrelated symbols produces a curve that clearly shows the progression over time (please see screenshot above). The best-case completion of the original plan is represented by a horizontal line. If this line is rising it signifies a delay in the schedule; a falling line means that completion will be ahead of schedule.
The Advantages of MTA
concise visualization of the history and prognosis of important milestones
timely detection of deadline bottlenecks with periodic updates
easy to use and quick to learn
improvement of deadline awareness among project participants.
