Rillsoft Project's capacity planning addresses the question of how to best plan your project resources and administer them in a time-saving and flexible way. The program supports you with numerous functions and helps you in evaluating resource-related data. The function "capacity alignment" supports you with a comprehensive set of functions in the essential aligning of resource requirements with the existing capacity.
Clearly arranged views show you all the key planning parameter at a glance. Rillsoft Project's capacity planning allows you to quickly and precisely plan, monitor and control all resources, thereby taking advantage of the following functions: Free capacities and utilizations of roles and employees can be assessed at any point in time. Processes causing utilizations can be defined and leeway be checked and evaluated within an existing buffer time. Shortfalls caused by personnel shortages can be precisely calculated and are easily detectable by a red colouring.
Excesses caused by free capacities can also be calculated and are marked by a blue colouring. The capacity alignment can be graphically analysed. Companies usually assign resources in several projects simultaneously. The collecting and presenting of data from several projects and company resources is at the core of resource management software. Rillsoft Project allows you to visualise and analyse data from several different projects. In addition, you can evaluate and optimise resource utilization altogether.
Rillsoft Project's project portfolio affords the presentation and analysis of randomly selected projects sharing one resource pool. Project prioritisation provides the basis for the capacity alignment of resources included in the project portfolio. You are free to define both category and status as well as sort and group together the projects included in the project portfolio at your option. All occurring tasks can be completed by way of the project portfolio, as if they were located in the individual projects:
time scheduling for all projects included in the portfolio capacity planning by taking into account the resources already assigned to other projects assists you in accomplishing the best possible utilization of all resources A variance analysis included in the portfolio checks every project against its own, specifically defined baseline. A sound time scheduling and operations planning is your first major step towards making your project a success. If companies work on several projects at one time, those pursuing a targeted time management will be better off. Along with costs and resource utilization, the timing of the process and the project's deadlines are key factors.
Rillsoft Project supports your efforts to be as professional and flexible as possible when managing your time scheduling and operations planning with the following functions: Creating/presenting the project schedule from different angles, either by using a bar diagram, a network diagram or a bar-network diagram. Links connecting the tasks will allow for an automatic re-calculation of the project's deadline if deadlines have moved or delays have occurred. Time intervals between these links can be defined as absolute, relative in % of the predecessor or in calendar time. Hierarchy-independent presentation of several processes consecutively in a row.
Use of subprojects, milestones and WBS codes helps invest the project with structure. Calculation and display of critical path and spare time highlights any bottlenecks the project may have. Earliest/latest stage of the project can be calculated (forward/backward scheduling). Routine operations can be stored as templates to be reused for other projects. Links connecting to documents, such as graphic files or Excel spreadsheets.
Dynamic presentation of the project in the intranet/internet via XML format. Generic management resource planning is used for the following events: the workforce cannot be equated with the number of available employees; for instance, not every available employee can be assigned to a certain personnel requirement not all names of future project staff are known before the start of the project.
Generic resources (roles) are, for instance, apprenticed professions, such as software developer or design draughtsman, who will be used along with other properties, such as qualifications and costs. Role-based planning provides the foundation for a later capacity alignment and eases the optimisation of the planning process. Additionally, this software allows you to import predefined roles. If you are still unsure about who of your employees will be available for the project, but you are eager to get a rough planning or conduct a feasibility study, role-based personnel planning would be your first choice. In order to be successful in realising your projects, you may find a detailed planning of all resources indispensable.
Rillsoft Project provides you two different ways to conduct your personnel placement planning: scheduling employees on the basis of assigned roles assigning employees to a process without previously specified roles, that is, directly as personnel ressource Rillsoft Project's personnel placement planning provides you with the following functions: The scheduled roles serve as a filter for the assignation of employees. While planning personnel resources, you will only be shown those employees meeting the required qualifications. While you are scheduling employees, the program indicates whether their time budget will be sufficient to complete their tasks.
The employees' leisure times and involvements in other projects will be examined to mark potential capacity problems in colours. Employees can be scheduled for several tasks with different utilizations at the same time. Employees can be assigned to processes with different role-requirements. You may take a employees out of a project for a limited period of time and assign them to another project or activities. The software allows you to analyse the optimal utilization of of roles or employees from different angles.
Team membership and working times as defined in the project calendar (including holidays and leaves) will be considered while setting the stages of the project. The ratio between scheduled and available labour times is calculated and displayed per time unit. Shortfalls are emphasised in colour and thus easy to recognise. You can compile reports for holiday scheduling.
A sound and realistic planning provides the foundation for making your project a true success. The progress of your project has however to be strictly monitored; otherwise, even the most brilliant plans will be doomed to failure. Rillsoft Project assists you in monitoring the progress of your projects. The software program delivers indispensible key data in an orderly and easily comprehensible way.
The presentation of projects and resources from different angles allow them being analysed according to a number of varied criteria. In planning your project controlling, Rillsoft Project provides you the following functions Save any number of reference plans, which constitute the basis for a variance analysis and include all project resources, labour hours and costs. You can detect the degree of completion for all the processes. This allows you to analyse the progress of your projects and always provides you information as to the current state of progress.
The variance analysis assists you in recognizing variances in terms of scheduling, resources and costs through conducting variance analyses. The program checks the current state of your project against reference plans and displays the differences by using graphics and charts. Through their additional checking of incoming wires, financing and liquidity control allows you to match the financial means at a certain point in time with ensuing expenses.
