MSP_LEVELING eases the burden of Project Managers
who generate and maintain schedules using Microsoft Project. MSP_LEVELING is a two-in-one product:
1. Schedule Quality Checking
2. Automatic Resource work-hour Leveling
Resource Leveling is best suited for computers to perform because the inherent complexity of doing it manually is very time consuming. MSP_LEVELING'S Advanced Capabilities include:
1)Schedule QUALITY Inspection
2)Weekly % TARGETS (input form) -- The Project Manager defines
the Max % Allowed for any Resource, for any Week in the Project.
3)HEAT Maps -- Color coded reports that Identify which resources are
Over-Allocated versus your Weekly % Targets.
4)Improvement Diagnostic-- A Pre-Level Heat Map that supports your ability to minimize Leveling Delays before you Level.
5)Automatic Leveling -- Ensures that resource work-hours do not exceed your (inputted) Weekly % Targets.
Uses 'Gantt-visible' leveling delay methodology (no confusion).
6)Scenario Capture Capability -- ability to capture key information
that can be reviewed with management for approvals
