Why does the Project Knowledge Dashboard Matter?
The simple metrics in the Project Knowledge Dashboard impacts every project stakeholder, because it relates to gaps that can occur in a project in knowledge accumulation. It demonstrates importance of documentation, specification readiness, completeness of documentation, and potential success metrics.
The Project Knowledge Dashboard makes it possible for individual contributors to know the specifications for assigned tasks, locate requirements documents through hyperlinks, work from the latest document version, and identify which documents critically impact their current work. The Project Knowledge Dashboard makes it easy to recognize changes and remain productive.
The Project Knowledge Dashboard makes it possible for project managers to access specifications while creating status reports, assigning resources, resolving technical issues, and managing variances from the project plan. As a result, project risk is low because everyone is working from the same specifications. During planning, project managers can also quickly determine if any requirements documents are missing.
Program and Senior Managers
The Project Knowledge Dashboard makes it possible for program and senior managers to instantly determine whether a project has sufficient documentation to succeed, identify which portions of projects require more documentation, and recognize project risks because of incomplete documentation. The Project Knowledge Dashboard makes it possible for these stakeholders to manage portfolios quickly and precisely.
Combined with the project status dashboards, the Project Knowledge Dashboard provides all stakeholders with a quick overview of how the project is progressing.
The integration of ConceptDraw PROJECT with ConceptDraw OFFICE helps improve project management by leveraging the power of mind mapping and data visualization.

The Project Knowledge Dashboard gives an instant accounting of how your project tasks trace back to requirements documents. As a result, you know the current status of work completed for the project budget and you can analyze the quality of the project input.
The Project Knowledge Dashboard communicates the percentage of tasks that trace back to requirements documents, the number of tasks that trace back to each requirements document, and the name and location of each requirements document.
