Task Level Schedule Planning

Task Level Schedule Planning

Scheduler Process

PDWare Schedule Planner provides the following features:

  • WBS creation with task and summary hierarchy to any level
  • Finish to start precedence relationships
  • Schedule calculation based on durations and precedence relationships
  • Gantt view of the task plan; task dates and durations can be modified by dragging Gantt bars
  • Update PDWare Portfolio phase dates from Schedule Planner
  • Seventeen pre-defined fields and sixty user defined fields are available for capturing project attributes; fields can be displayed in any order or hidden, most fields can be formatted by the user
  • State inconsistencies can be highlighted (the current date is compared to task/summary start and finish dates); the pre-defined fields State and % Complete can be populated automatically on user command
  • Request resources or skills for the project team from the PDWare Portfolio resource pool (work availability is provided by the functional manager response)
  • Assign team members to tasks and specify work effort required by time period (days, weeks, months, quarters, halves, years)
  • View work effort by project and by resource; color highlighting shows where availability is not sufficient for the required work effort
