Q + A's from project managers

My boss is always asking for a level 2 schedule that he can present to our clients (and hopefully secure more work) he says that my detailed schedule contains too much information – how can I do this?

....The mpower scheduling tool has grouping capabilities, which allow a summary Gantt chart to be viewed using more detailed data.


As part of our estimating process we go through multiple revisions to an estimate – is it possible to track and compare these?

....Yes, any number of estimate revisions can be created, and all are available for reporting.


We need to track variations/change orders at the detailed job carding level – how can we do this?

....mpower has a Variation tracking facility that allows scope changes to be registered at the Program level, along with a high level estimate of any financial or man-hour impact.  Once registered the variation number can then be assigned to the associated job card estimates to identify the detailed changes to the base scope.  Variations also have an approval status (Pending/Approved/Rejected) which controls how the job card estimates associated with the variation impacts forecasts.
