Workflow planning and scheduling software is an advanced tool that can help businesses to plan; schedule; record; and optimise workflows in an organisation. They provide an end-to-end system for managing how work is created and then completed in businesses. At Dcode Group, we've worked with a range of businesses on developing custom workflow planning and scheduling software. And in our latest iterations; we've had some great breakthroughs in resource allocation and scheduling.
At Dcode Group we've worked with a wide range of customers on developing bespoke, Project Management Solutions that incorporate Workflow Planning and Scheduling.
Our solutions generally provide the following features/functions:
- Creating Projects
- Adding Tasks to a Project
- Scheduling Tasks for completion
- Assigning Resources to Tasks
- Invoicing and Follow-Up
In this post, we're going to focus on one aspect of the soltion - Planning and Scheduling.
But often the most difficult aspect of the process is around how to allocate resources and how to gain visibility over how resources have been allocated. But we think we've come up with a clear and concise way to visualise and manage the process of allocating Resources to Tasks.
... and here it is; our freshly designed Scheduling View.
This view provides a comprehensive overview of the working week for a business. This includes:
- Tasks that are Scheduled to be completed;
- Team members available for work;
- Team members on Leave; and
- Drag and Drop to allow for Scheduling and Re-Scheduling in a quick and responsive manner.
We're confident that this approach to Planning and Scheduling can provide significant benefits to business as well as being easy to adopt for Project Managers.
