Oasys Scheduler™ makes planning easier and more rewarding for Microsoft Project users by optimizing across numerous tasks, resource conflicts, links, and constraints. It also saves user time by graphically indicating directly on the Gantt chart view which tasks are contributing to a resource’s over allocation.
Each time a schedule is optimized, Oasys Scheduler™ presents a detailed report showing exactly how many resource conflicts were resolved, the number of tasks whose leveling delay increased or decreased, and the change in project duration. In addition, the tasks with leveling delay changes are graphically indicated on the Gantt chart view, making it easy to quickly get an idea of how the schedule was changed. A pop-up window allows easy optional customization of optimization parameters, like the maximum run-time.
Customers who have already bought and used Oasys Scheduler™ add-in report that it:
• Significantly decrease their project's duration compared to Microsoft Project's built-in resource leveling
• Automatically level resources amid heavy resource conflicts
• Identify tasks with resource conflicts directly on the Gantt Chart view
Typical application verticals include construction, software development, government projects, and aerospace projects.
A savvy connected buyer could:
• Re-brand the software and sell it at a profit
• Integrate it into their existing scheduling products and sell it at a profit
• Specialize it for one of the verticals and sell it at a profit
• Turn around and sell it to Microsoft at a profit
