9 Knowledge Areas in PMBOK

With reference to the nine knowledge areas, how may a project manager carry out project analysis?

Project Analysis

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)?
One could advocate project analysis occurs in every area and every stage.
Do you have further details available?

Project Analysis in PMBOK

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.
