Schedule Health Policy

Schedule health is used to indicates the health of a project in terms of scheduling. Project schedule health is indicated by the colored indicator in the project header.

A project only has a schedule health indicator when the work plan is Active; it disappears when the work plan is completed or put On Hold.

The Schedule Health policy controls:

  • The percent of tasks that have exceptions to turn the schedule health red or yellow.
  • The violations of which rules cause PPM to report exceptions on tasks.
  • Whether or not the violations of particular exception rules are included in the schedule health indicator.

Options in this policy are described as follows.

Option Description
Allow project managers to override these settings? Whether or not project managers can edit this policy in their projects.

Note: When calculating the count of total tasks, PPM does not include summary task or tasks whose status is either "Completer" or "Cancelled".

Percent of tasks that must have Exceptions to turn the Schedule Health Yellow When the specified percent of tasks of the project work plan have exceptions, the project schedule health turns to yellow.
Exception Rules

This section lists a set of predefined exception rules. You can specify the following:

  • Whether or not a particular exception rule is enabled. If it is enabled, violations of this rule cause PPM to report exceptions on tasks.
  • The number of days a particular exception rule waits for or monitors.
