Aarhus, Denmark (PressExposure) February 26, 2009 -- The core problem of planning and scheduling multiple concurrent projects is shared scarce resources. Multi Project Planner is designed to address this issue directly.
In traditional single project planning solutions each row in the gantt chart represents an activity. The result is that the gantt charts of multiple projects have to be stacked on top each other.
The core of Multi Project Planner is a global plan, where each row represents the schedule for a work team, capable of executing project activities of a given type.
Thus the global plan represents the schedule of the production capacity, upon which the gantt charts of the projects are superimposed along the time axis, according to the resource requirements of the project activities and the competences offered by the work teams.
This layout immediately reveals resource conflicts in a clearly visible way. Together with a lot of features, most notably template projects and hot potatoes, Multi-Project-Planner greatly eases the task of multi project planning as it keeps track of all the little things and loose ends leaving you to concentrate on the main planning issues.
