Description from the Publisher

Multi project structure, handle project dependencies, share resources between projects

The product is specifically designed for project managers that need to handle the company's projects and resources in a centralized way. Besides all Single Project features, Multi Project version comes with additional ones when projects are interrelated by task dependencies or common resources, or if you just want to see all projects' data in one place.

Even more RationalPlan Multi Project can be used as a standalone application or to connect to RationalPlan Project Server. In this way project managers can have not only a multi project management system but also a multi user project management system. Concurrent access for multiple users is now possible through the use of the server architecture.

Define general data of your project

This is where the project starts. Usually a name and maybe a code are used to identify each project. If known, a start date can also be set (though you can get back to this step at any time to set/change it). A short, concise description of the project objective could also be useful.

Use notes and links to track project related information

For each project there are important details to be remembered. You can use the notes area for this. For other important documents related to the project like the project charter, product description, project deliverables, project objectives etc. you can define links and attach descriptions that will help you to identify the link's target.

Define the project working time

Use calendars to specify working times for resources or to schedule project's tasks. Calendar editor helps to create custom calendars.

To define special days, click on Set holidays, days off and other special days tag.

Note the assumptions and constraints

Assumptions are factors considered in planning phase to be true, real, or certain and involve a degree of risk (e.g.: if an activity needs a special equipment, the project manager may assume that it will be available).

Constraints are restrictions that affect the performance of the project. The most popular constraint is the budget, which limits the scope, staffing and schedule.

Both assumptions and constraints are important issues to be considered along the project life.

Identify risks

Risk management is an important aspect of the project management.

Identify project risks and set the impact level and the probability to occur. Think about a risk response plan to reduce threats to the project's objectives and describe it in the Notes area below the table.

Create the project's work breakdown structure

A WBS is a deliverable-oriented grouping of project components that covers the total scope of the project.
First, you should identify the major project deliverables. Then, decompose deliverables into smaller components, until they are presented in sufficient detail to support definition of the activities.

A WBS is not a project plan or a project schedule and it is not a chronological listing. It is considered poor practice to construct a project schedule before designing a proper WBS.

Define the project activities

Identify the activities that must be performed to produce the deliverables composing the WBS. Sequence the activities by defining their dependencies (links, constraints) and estimate their duration.

Human resources and equipment

Based on the project activities, identify the necessary personnel and equipment.

You can assign a calendar for each resource as well as define unique exceptions such as vacation, days off etc. Different cost rates can be defined for normal working hours and overtime hours.

Material resources

Identify the necessary materials for the project. This is a pool of resources that will be shared between projects. For each of them, define it's price per unit and measure unit.

Cost resources

These resources may include costs with tools, travel expenses, training or management fees or other kind of fixed costs. When assigning a cost resource to a task you will be able to specify the cost value for that assignment.

Level project resources

The Multi Project version allows you to share resources between projects (hence it is possible to have overallocated resources in one project due to its assignment on another project - it may be needed to view All projects in case of an overallocation over multiple projects).

Overallocated resources as well as resources that work overtime hours will appear in red, respectively yellow color. Check the time sheet area and zoom in/out to spot the exact period when the problem occurs. Both task and resource details are available in this view so you can easily reallocate resources or take other actions to solve the overallocation issue.

Track the evolution of the project

This view provides a way to monitor the project evolution while updating the schedule with the information about the tasks completion. The completed part of a task will be marked in the Gantt chart with a darker color.

You can also update tasks duration so the schedule will match the actual project's evolution.
