Specific characteristics

ConceptDraw PROJECT contains an extensive tool set to help project managers. The rich data visualization capability that is provided by ConceptDraw products builds project dashboards, one-click reports, multi-project views, Gantt charts and resource views, resource usage views. The rich visual data presentation supports important project management tasks such as critical planning and change management.

Competitive advantages

ConceptDraw Project is a unique PM tool that transforms project data into visually attractive dashboards which may update dynamically.

The Live Object technology allows connecting a complex object shape to an external data source so that dynamic updates happen from changes in the data.

 

ConceptDraw Project vs other PM tools benefits:

 

- Roundtrip import and export to MS Project file format.

- Wide set of columns.

- Comparing to ConceptDraw Project, many other tools have lack of settings for tasks and resources, we have smart Scheduling, which calculates/represents data automatically (types of tasks Fixed Duration, Fixed Work, Fixed Unit, with or without Effort Driven).

- Using ConceptDraw Project, project manager can set the value of the resource, change the resource settings to a specific task in the load plan etc. Wherein, it calculates, for example, task Duration, depending on the Scheduling type settings.

Typical application scenarios

ConceptDraw PROJECT offers the full set of features you need to plan, organize and manage a project, including task and resource management, reporting, and change control – this is not only interesting for project managers - to be in time and in budget is a team's responsibility.
