Milestones

Milestones help to visualize over target planning

Introducing a new activity type called milestones is helping to manage and control the impact on schedule variances. 

Links & Delays

Advanced relationships between activities

Set finish>start, start>start or finish>finish relationships between activites with a soft or hard link. This link can be enriched with a positive or negative delay which results in a more realistic planning.

Baselines

Compare your actual planning to a previous version

Each published planning can be stored as a baseline. You can always compare the actual planning against any of the baselines stored in the past. Project changes can be tracked and relevant information can be stored to review the project and define lessons learned.

Material Tracking

Get warned pro-actively on material availability

Link item requirements, purchase orders and production orders to the activity start or end date. The material availability will be displayed on tasks level. When materials are delayed the earliest start date will be presented and an easy direct link to the order allows to easily track down the issue and set out corrective actions.

 

Resource Capacity

Capacity insights in histogram or buckets

Visualization on demand and in real time. The split screen allows direct impact insight after rescheduling while full screen enables you to focus on a larger selection of resources at a single glance

Always in control!

Version History

Revert to previous versions of the planning.

Keep track of all published project versions and their descriptions to see full project history.
