Professional Schedules – Quick & Easy
Powerproject made a name for itself because it is so easy to use with its intuitive and responsive user interface.
It can be used in the same way as Microsoft Office, with the same ribbon tabs, keyboard shortcuts, etc. The approach is often the same as if working manually.
You use the mouse to simply add activities and milestones directly to the schedule along with their logical relationships to each other, including overlaps or delays.
You can move and copy items up and down and side to side within a schedule, between schedules, between projects; you can change the time scale as often as you like and use different scales in different parts of the schedule; you can format the date field however you want; and you can use intuitive drag and drop to assign calendars, codes, resources, cost centres, etc.
You can even create activity libraries so you can quickly add a whole group of predefined activities.
There is a link to Bidcon estimating program to get the planning process off to a good start.
The resulting estimate is used to generate activities, milestones, resources and costs which you can then refine in Powerproject.
