  1. PMP Solution 102

    A. Trend analysis is used to forecast future project performance based on past results. It looks ahead in the project for expected slippages and warns the project manager ahead of time that there may be problems later in the schedule if established trends persist. It can also be used to validate the models used in the organization. However, we are not looking to validate any model or to predict issues in this project while comparing two variables.
    C. Affinity diagrams allow large numbers of ideas to be classified into groups for review and analysis.
    D. Variance analysis can be used to improve the metrics of the organization by comparing what was initially planned and the end result.

    Data analysis techniques that can be used in project closeout include but are not limited to; document analysis, regression analysis, trend analysis and variance analysis. Regression analysis is focused on the interrelationships between different project variables that contributed to the project outcomes to improve performance on future projects. It is an analytical technique where a series of input variables are examined in relation to their corresponding output results in order to develop a mathematical or statistical relationship. Therefore, right answer is B. [PMBOK 6th edition, Page 126,718] [Project Integration Management]
