Shaping the Future
The future of project controls demands sustained innovation. Working on real-world projects, our project controls leaders provide critical user insight and input into shaping the future of forecasting in project management. Our innovation group creates algorithms and methods and develops software to empower project controls professionals to act on these insights.
Investing in Innovation
Creating game-changing project controls methods and algorithms greatly enhances our client and project success. Since 2004, PMA has been developing and implementing patented intellectual property software to advance project management practice.
We offer four software applications plus an entire suite of services that put our tools into practice. Our focus is always on highly predictable projects with improved forecasting that provides near-certain cost and schedule outcomes.
“Innovate or perish! Niche consulting firms that do not innovate will be commoditized by their markets, will be held back by status quo technologies and will remain local or, at best, regional.”

Graphical Path Method
A Revolutionary Scheduling Algorithm
The Graphical Path Method (GPM®) promotes rapid, collaborative, and informed project planning, creates more intuitive schedules, and optimizes schedule analysis. Unlike the Critical Path Method (CPM) where planning and scheduling are separate processes performed consecutively, GPM continuously updates schedule data in real-time as changes to the schedule occur. Using GPM enables dynamic feedback from the schedule so stakeholders can make decisions about time/cost tradeoffs and resource allocation and perform other vital analyses as the schedule is being built.
The Future of Schedule Summarization
Summarize large and detailed schedules and keep multiple schedules synchronized with ease.
