The patent details project workflows and the evaluation of completeness at each step. Additionally, it covers the monitoring of task and project activity for the purpose of identifying key performance indicators. Those indicators, recorded as data in the platform, can include project contributor efficiencies, inefficiencies, timeliness, quality. With that, evaluators can make comparative analyses with colleagues, or simply evaluate the data directly.
