This article describes the Aptage PERF tool and how it combines the sciences of a) wisdom of teams and b) mathematics of uncertainty. We put the “science” in SWAG. See Aptage PERF – for Engineering for the same article on engineering projects.
We at Aptage believe that innovative development should be approached with the discipline of any other risky investment. When embarking on an innovative program, one should know the likelihood of making the target return of investment. Further, a well-managed innovative effort should result in improving the likelihood of getting the targeted return.
How Aptage RBd works with complex projects
Read an Aptage origin case study how Dr. Murray Cantor salvaged a failing program for a Federally Funded Research and Development Corporation, tasked by Space Command, to build an intelligence system.
Read the StarCorp Case Study of applying Aptage to strategic market focus and investment.
Besides its use in project management to quantify risk, Aptage can be used to create an investment strategy.
FRAnK, otherwise known (for now) as the Project Confidence Calculator, is a lightweight, easy-to-use version of our core technology. We took the Aptage engine and trimmed it down to the fundamentals so you can easily see how risky your project plan is and commit to a date with high confidence without investing much time estimating or planning.
