We use the mandated software applications, experience and expertise for a number of value adding services to both the CASG and Industry. 

Defence specific tools and implementations have been:

  • Development of an estimating template (Product available with Tools4Schedulers). This template is used by Industry as well as CASG (LEA, GTESPO, parts of LSD). The template builds the resource profile (hrs / $) split by Project WBS and resources, then with the click of a button exports the data into CSV format ready for a direct import (Transfer.dat) into Open Plan Professional. It saves considerable time and enables real time histogram viewing power to the Project Managers, schedulers and Cost Account Managers.

The template can also roll the Hours and Cost to Level 1 or 2 of the WBS and give an excellent cross check of the financial model, excellent for Tenders and bid work.

- Over 30 Transfer.dat scripts for importing and exporting information in and out of Open Plan Professional (OPP)

- Schedule Health checks for Industry in line with DMO Scheduling Policies

- Migrating MSP Schedules into OPP
