Mwaita, not clear on the question. Analyze what knowledge area of the project (scope, time, cost, quality, HR, communications, risk, procurement) and / or which process group or stage in the life cycle (at concept, planning, executing, monitoring & controlling, or closing)?

Project Analysis in PMBOK
T. Stahl
Analysis is often done by using "expert knowledge", metrics or tools.
- For example, you would perform analysis on cost estimates by getting input from experts who have done similar work before, by accessing company data on previous projects, or using estimating software tools.
- On time, you would perform "critical path" analysis or similar analysis, again using "expert knowledge" or available metrics. Hope this helps.
