Integrated Master Plan

Integrated Master Plan (IMP): Your Schedule Roadmap to Success

The Integrated Master Plan (IMP) is an event-based roadmap for your project. The IMP provides sufficient definition to track required Accomplishments for each Event and to demonstrate satisfied Criteria for each Accomplishment. The top down Integrated Master Plan (IMP) is coded into the more detailed Integrated Master Schedule (IMS). Together, the IMP/IMS create the foundation to manage the technical, schedule, and cost baseline. Without the IMP, it is more difficult to generate a current status of major events and reviews for stakeholders.
