The Project Planning and Management software is designed as a general, affordable Excel-based solution for planning and managing any project. It offers the ability to build the project's budget as tasks are identified, thereby facilitating business case proposal processes, evaluation analysis, and securing the necessary project funding. Thanks to this platform, project dynamics can be modified and performance can be monitored through earned value analysis throughout the life cycle of the project.

The interface of the Project Planning and Management software enables the project budget to be defined as the tasks are determined. The different phases of the project, task titles, leave periods, and other key project parameters can be predefined to speed up workflow. The software takes into account task dependencies and time constraints for automatic calculation of task timing. A Gantt project schedule with daily, weekly, or monthly intervals is created with integrated task information.

  • Business case proposal and evaluation analysis
  • Project budget definition based on defined tasks
  • Predefinition of different project phases, task titles, and other key project parameters
  • Creation of a Gantt project schedule with integrated task information
  • Performance monitoring through earned value analysis

The project status report details the overall progress of the project based on the earned value analysis, and displays trends for cost and scheduling performance indices. Individual workbooks with task lists for each project participant can be generated and a subsequent batch import function can be used to automate the updating of progress and project status. The Project Planning and Management software is compatible with Excel 97-2013 for Windows and Excel 2011 or 2004 for Mac as a cross-platform project management solution.
