||New quality metric to check for Start to Start and Finish to Finish links; new quality metric to check for variance against the current baseline.
||A customer requested the addition of a new quality metric to check for Start to Start and Finish to Finish links and a new quality metric to check for variance against the current baseline.
You can now check your projects to ensure that they do not contain too high a proportion of Start to Start and Finish to Finish links, using the new ‘Logic type’ quality metric. By default, the pass and fail boundaries for this metric are set to 10%, so a project will pass this quality metric only if 10% or less of its links are Start to Start or Finish to Finish links.
You can now check your projects for variances between dates in the live data and dates in the current baseline, using the new ‘Baseline variance’ quality metric. With this metric, you specify a duration. The start and finish dates of tasks are compared against the dates of the corresponding tasks in the current baseline. If the difference between a task’s start or finish date in the live data and its start or finish date in the baseline is greater than or equal to the given duration, the task fails the metric. If a task is progressed, its actual start date is compared against the start date in the baseline. By default, the duration is set to 5d and the pass and fail boundaries are set to 100%, which means that a project will fail this metric if the start or finish date of any task differs from the corresponding date in the baseline by 5d or more.
