ProjectScript has a dynamic real-time heatmap driven dashboard for every user – for CEOs, Executives, Managers, Superintendents, Foremen, and Workers. Users can plan, execute, report, and control their work using the dashboard. The dynamic real-time heatmap dashboard provides the users with the most current status of their enterprise, portfolios, and projects. Users can go further down to the level of a single activity or a set of activities to learn its status, predict the outcomes, and/or analyze the variances and its root causes. Users can view the scheduled activities daily or over longer periods of time in past, present, or future.
ProjectScript dashboard is dynamic and real-time because the software enables the workers and supervisors to update the project activity status in real-time. Dashboard also provides the required information on the past performance, predicts the at completion values, and gives insights into the future outcomes.
ProjectScript dashboard also serves as a real-time communication and collaboration platform. Users can also implement custom alerts and notifications about their subjects of interest at any levels – enterprise, portfolios, projects, WBS, activity, resource, or KPIs (key performance indicator) about any project health factor or other metrics.
CEOs, at a glance, can get an overall picture about the health of their enterprise project portfolios from the ProjectScript dashboard. CEOs can define what “Project Health” is for their organizations. We have identified seven critical metrics (much more than safety, quality, cost, and schedule) which are project-related and are essential for project success in current modern dynamic world. However, CEOs can customize the selection of these critical metrics. The dynamic, real-time heatmap driven dashboard may become the most valuable tool in the hands of CEOs leading project-oriented enterprises to drive their projects to greater success!
CEOs can learn the health status of projects and portfolios enterprise-wide. Similar impressions can be made about portfolios or projects by using ProjectScript dashboard. If the CEO wants to learn more about any portfolio, project, WBS, or any activity or group of activities, ProjectScript enables the CEO to drill down to that level of data. CEOs can use the dashboard to connect with the real person or the team responsible for the activity and address the need if a direct communication is more beneficial.
Portfolio Managers can get accurate pictures of their projects and portfolios from their dashboards. Managers can create portfolios in any way as they desire. They can also implement custom alerts and notifications about their metrics of interest at any levels – portfolios, projects, WBS, activity, resource, or KPIs (key performance indicator) about any project health metric. Managers get an accurate and real-time view of their project health from the dashboard. Project health includes seven key metrics which need to be planned, executed, monitored, controlled, and reported at activity and resource levels so that the executives at higher levels of the organization can get an accurate picture of their portfolio health status. Managers can view their scheduled activities daily or over longer periods from their dashboard. They can view the activities past progress and past performance data of labor and equipment. Based on these the Managers and Foremen can view the predictions made by ProjectScript about the outcomes of their activities which will be reasonably accurate.
Superintendents and Foremen can view what the Manager has planned for them for the day and for the week. Managers provide their Superintendents and Foremen with daily goals for work progress and appropriate budgets in terms of duration, cost, and hours (labor and equipment). This helps Foremen to learn the skills to plan and control budget on a daily basis which will help them to manage bigger responsibilities when they transition to leadership roles.
Workers can learn what the Manager’s expectations are for the day’s work. Workers can learn about their work and their team, access drawings, and know about the materials and equipment required for the work. They can also educate themselves about the safety, quality, and other risks related to the activities. They can report about the work progress, problems faced, and grade their team performance. The goal here is to enable workers to be safer and be more productive. Providing workers with the quality requirements and useful tips help them to avoid rework. Planning, budgeting, monitoring, and reporting the work on a daily basis helps the workers as a team to achieve their daily goals. The dashboard also serves as a communication platform for the team and the managers.
