Database-based capacity and production planning for medium-sized companies

The use of planning tools should help to make the order processing transparent for all business segments. Transparency improvements should optimize lead-time and improve deadline management.

Resources management

  • Management of employees and their saved data. In addition to the basic personal data this includes contact data, skill level and assignment to managers and team
  • Access restrictions by editing for your own team, extensive read access
  • A few employees should be able to edit, but everyone should have a read access

Flexible project planning

  • Gantt chart/network diagram representation, project structuring
  • Single steps should be described
  • Customizable templates for project size and complexity
  • Automatic scheduling (dependencies and interactions between the resources in the multiproject), the software should point out time and resource conflicts in the project plan
  • The projects can be assigned to an organizational hierarchy and hierarchy in the project portfolio
  • Multi-project management – several projects are created for several departments
  • Editing should be recorded by the system

Time Tracking & employee timesheet

  • The working time recording is visible for each employee and affects upcoming tasks
  • Employees may affect only tasks where they are scheduled. The project manager should approve the hours counted for a project
  • Trends, developments and specific aspects of the project (e.g. actual status) can be evaluated clearly
  • The payment plan is saved separately and compared to the resource planning

Automatic notification of employees

The e-mail notifications are triggered by different project events, e.g. in case of short-term changes in the project, the notification system creates an e-mail message and sends it to the employees who have been scheduled to take part in the assigned tasks. Or, for example, if the scheduled employee failed to report his progress in time, an e-mail will be sent him as a reminder.
