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

"Nearly every great advance in science arises from a crisis in the old theory, through an endeavor to find a way out of the difficulties created. We must examine old ideas, old theories, although they belong to the past, for this is the only way to understand the importance of the new ones and the extent of their validity."
