DYANA – an innovative solution for project management

The GDP Italy R&D Team has developed DYANA, a toolbox that extends and enhances the suite of services offered by GDP.
DYANA enables a highly data-driven approach to project management, providing a solid analytical foundation for GDP managers in the decision-making process and in identifying and anticipating project risks.
By collecting data, information, and documents in a unified workspace, along with exportable reports and interactive dashboards in common formats (.xls, .pdf, .ppt), all parties involved in the project can understand, track, and contribute to its progress.
DYANA’s methodology is built on the concept of a data pipeline, allowing for the collection and processing of project data and rapid, frequent, and automated process updates.
The innovations that make DYANA a cutting-edge solution include customized, client, and project-oriented layouts, quick set-up, full integration with the Office environment, and versatile features across the board.

Project Overview

In this page, the main aspects of the project status are summarized, providing a quick high-level overview and highlighting the data that require attention.

Project Progress

In this page, you can analyze the project’s progress by diving into the details for each activity. In addition to the consolidated progress, the project forecast at completion is also presented, based on the data. Everything is compared to the baseline to easily identify any delays compared to the original plan. The ability to filter data with a simple click allows for shifting the focus to specific groups of activities or defined time frames. This is particularly valuable in the context of project management with reporting tools.

Project Schedule

Gantt Chart:
It can be easily navigated, allowing you to drill down into the details as needed.
It can be enriched with the actual progress of each activity visible alongside the planning, and other relevant information, such as estimated vs. actual costs for each activity.
The convenient date filter enables you to focus on a specific time frame.

Risk Management

On this page, an overview of the recorded project risks is presented. The tables contain all the essential information for effective risk management, while the charts provide visual insights into their distribution, especially by discipline and status.
In the bubble chart, we emphasize the probability of risk occurrence compared to its impact (on the schedule, costs, or both) and their potential to create significant issues. This allows for quick identification of areas requiring prompt intervention, aligning with the needs of project management supported by reporting tools.

Risk Analysis

In this page, a more in-depth analysis of project risks is presented.
Specifically, the causes of risks are analyzed, and their impacts on the budget and schedule are evaluated, also compared in the bubble chart.
Through the Monte Carlo analysis tool, forecasts are provided for the overall major costs and the overall project completion delay..

Cost Overview

On this page, an overview of the financial flows is provided. Cumulative and point-in-time costs and revenues are compared, specifically their actual, forecasted, and planned trends. The tables offer details on incurred costs and revenue sources.

Change Orders

This page is dedicated to Change Management. For each change order, the status and the impact the variation will have on the project’s budget and schedule are evaluated. Specifically, for approved variations, the bubble chart provides insights into the reasons that led to the change, immediately highlighting any issues that necessitated the modifications.
