Project Management


Tool Specs




Actano's RPLAN e3 is an Enterprise Project Management software that finds widespread use in the automotive industry. Unlike other tools, RPLAN adopts a collaborative project management approach and divides project schedules into a large number of individual schedule fragments. Each fragment has an owner and users can load and edit any combination of fragments into the application as if they constituted a single schedule. Even if the schedules are very large, users are presented with a clearly arranged view and are able to plan realistically. The software also enables departments to exchange planning information during the course of projects.

Currently, more than 100 high-profile companies with more than 120,000 users worldwide deploy RPLAN and RPLAN e3 to master challenges such as globalization and heterogeneity, integration of non-industrial partners, and synchronization and interaction in dynamic processes.


The software is of modular structure and the following modules are available for the various application areas:

  • Schedule Manager – to plan projects using a task table with a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and a Gantt chart
  • Resource Manager – to assign and manage project resources
  • Timesheet – to record the time and effort expended on projects
  • Project Controller – to control the contents of projects during execution. Goals, risks and actions, for instance, are managed using this module.
  • Portfolio Manager – to manage corporate project portfolios
  • Presentation Graphics – to convert schedules into PowerPoint presentations
  • Reporting – to output the data of all modules in the form of reports (PDF, HTML, CSV, RTF)
  • RPLAN Collaborative Workspace - enables distributed teams to start working together ad hoc across divisional or corporate boundaries in a virtual project space
