  • Novologic’s Variation Event Tracker (VET) is based on Stoneboy’s VMP (Variation Management Protocol). Developed at Stoneboy, VMP is a comprehensive methodology which utilizes calculus, and advanced data analytics for construction project reporting and analysis. A potential game changer in the field of Variation Analysis, Impact Analysis, and Construction Claims Management – VMP is a spin off of Stoneboy’s holistic project data management approach.

  • VET documents the impact of a variation event on the project scope (Scope Variation), project time (Time Variation), and project cost (Cost Variation).
