Project Manager

Project Manager

The project manager is responsible for planning and executing his or her projects. Potential problems during the progress of the project must be identified in good time by the project manager, so that timely countermeasures can be initiated.

The fact that all information relating to the project, such as project attributes, key dates, descriptive data such as risks and opportunities, and evaluation data such as objective contribution and risk value, is displayed to the project manager in the Project Core Data module.

PLANTA Project provides comprehensive support for project manager tasks. As a result, deviations from project planning can be avoided.

 Project Planning and Monitoring

  • Putting together the project team independently of the resource structure
  • Working out detailed timing, cost and resource plans
  • Delegating sub-projects to sub-project managers
  • Freezing basic plans and/or versions of plans
  • Project progress monitoring, early warning system with ‘traffic lights’
  • Project controlling through integrated reporting to control project progress in line with original planning
  • Project controlling by means of integrated reporting system (actual dates, efforts and costs)
  • Documenting projects, including project risks

Costs and Budget

The Budget module provides you with a clear display of cost, budget, and effort details of the project by cost type groups. A budget planning can be carried out with the objective of comparing costs calculated in the course of the planning and the budget.

Any number of cost type groups for costs and effort can be defined, displayed, and evaluated. Both Top Down and Bottom Up budgeting are possible.

Reports on cost and risk trends as well as milestones can be created. Plan deviation and project trend can also be displayed graphically.
