Each task has properties such as start and end dates, duration, progress, predecessors, costs, resources, accountability, etc.
BlueProjectHero offers a wide range of project diagrams.
Whether Gantt, network, load, schedule or PERT diagram – BlueProjectHero makes it possible. From project management beginners to professionals, everyone can find the necessary diagrams.
Gantt Chart / Bar Chart
The work packages and their duration are displayed in a Gantt chart (bar graph). By dragging and dropping, the bars can be moved, lengthened or shortened to represent the duration of the individual tasks.
Staff resources can be assigned to the tasks.
Costs (staff, material, services) can be assigned to the tasks.
The bars of the individual tasks control the start and end dates of the activity. These can be adjusted manually or by mouse click.
Countless project tools are available (see documentation).
Different views like bar / table / bar and table / cost / resources are available.
The goal of the network planning is the planning of the logical relationships between the processes and the temporal position of the processes. The use of network planning is intended to answer four important questions:
- How long will the whole project last? What are the risks?
- What critical activities can delay the entire project if they do not finish on time?
- Is the project on schedule, will it be finished sooner or later?
- If it has to be finished earlier, what is best to do, how can an acceleration be achieved with the least cost?
Earliest start / end and latest start / end per task are visualized.
Critical path is visualized.
Task duration is visualized.
Displays delays (or accelerations) of the project.
PERT is a method for analyzing the tasks of a project, in particular the time required to complete each task and the minimum time required to complete the project. It offers the possibility to schedule projects under uncertainty, without knowing exactly the details and duration of all activities.
A PERT diagram is a project management tool that is used to plan, organize, and coordinate tasks within a project. PERT stands for program evaluation review technology.
This shows how people (resources) are scheduled in the project. So which persons in which work package are active. The diagram is especially useful to avoid resource overlaps.
Which resource (person) has a task at which time?
- Are people working on several tasks at the same time (overload)?
- Where do the tasks overlap?
To what percentage of their time are employees involved in tasks?
Which tasks have not yet been assigned to persons (unassigned)?
Displays a load diagram for a selected resource. If a resource in a work package is e.g. planned for 50% of its capacity, this is displayed on a time scale. The person (resource) can be selected in the upper window area via a selection list. If the person is “booked” (100% load) at a certain point in time, a red bar is displayed.
Is an employee covered with tasks at a certain time to 50%, 100% or 150% (overloaded)?
Red bar = employee overloaded (> 100% workload)
