Project Scheduling

Project management processes in Planisware were designed in accordance with institution standards, such as those described in the PMBOK®, PACE® from PRTM®, Stage-Gate®.

Planisware supports on-going business process improvement while targeting operational excellence.

Key Features

  • Better visibility over all projects. Simple dashboards allow organizations to review the progress of projects in light of environment changes, new risks and opportunities, and project trends in cost, schedule, resource consumption, time curves, and earned value.
  • Facilitated management of deliverables and project-interdependencies. Some projects may supply a deliverable that will be used by other projects. Deliverables management provides visibility over program, product, and technology cross-dependencies within the portfolio. Planisware manages deliverables by enabling each project to identify existing outputs within the organization's portfolio that may be a key element for cross-project success or completion. The system also helps keep supply and demand timing synchronized without interfering with the scheduling of each project.
  • A comprehensive, integrated, resource management system. Provide or a calculate project specific resource demands, test outsourcing strategies, request and monitor the allocation of resources, track time reporting, and utilize multi-axis consolidation (project, portfolio, organization, etc.) to gain full insight as to who should be, and who actually is working on your projects, and when. An integrated schedule, resource, and cost engine ensures all aspects are aligned automatically.
  • One place to go, one version of data, for all to share. All project stakeholders use the same tool, methodologies, and data which build trust around the system, improve use frequency and results in more frequent project updates.
  • An intuitive, web-based solution that anyone can follow.

Risk Management

Evaluating and balancing risks, costs and benefits is crucial to successful project management. Planisware adopts a structured approach toward risk management that empowers project managers to make decisions at various points throughout the life of the project.

Throughout the project execution process, users can pro-actively catalog, assess, and manage specific risks as they arise. Planisware helps promote the visibility of risks across projects with the Risk Register. The solution rolls up all risks at portfolio levels, where dedicated reporting provides information regarding current risk levels and trends.

Organizations may also associate risk rates for each phase of the project, in order to gain an even more realistic account of cost and demand when aggregated at the portfolio level.

Deliverable Management

Deliverable management capabilities in Planisware provide users with full visibility and control over products, technologies, components, or services that are delivered by one project, and required for the success of another.

Planisware enables project managers to track the progress of deliverables and use provided documentation to prioritize work and anticipate the impact of delays and changing circumstances before it's too late.

Multi-Level Planning and Visibility

Planisware’s Synchronization Module facilitates communication and promotes alignment between development teams and project teams by allowing mutual visibility into key tasks and milestones across projects. The comparison is accomplished seamlessly and captures both scheduling misalignments, as well as discrepancies in assumptions.

This means different functions can access targeted milestone dates and Project Management can gain insight into realistic deliveries - before problems occur.
