South Lyon, MI (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
User Solutions, Inc.’s original Spreadsheet Scheduler, the simple-to-use, low-cost project management system, has been upgraded to be operational on tablets such as the iPad. Now, via its compatibility with Office 365, it has never been so convenient or simple to add Gantt charting to current spreadsheets. Spreadsheet Scheduler also provides built-in project management algorithms and simple work center scheduling modules. Compatible with all spreadsheets, its new support for Excel 2007-2013’s extension to 1 million items/rows and 16,000 time buckets/columns, accommodates any size operation for any length of time.
For those looking to learn or teach project management concepts, Spreadsheet Scheduler is the perfect entry point with its upward migration path to MS Project or other scheduling systems from User Solutions. These scheduling systems fulfill the full range of production scheduling and project management needs from job shops and laboratories to plant manufacturing and equipment maintenance. Functionality also includes ability to do “what-if” analysis to accommodate changes without missing deadlines.
Spreadsheet Scheduler provides an easy-to-use set of tools to help any organization manage projects more efficiently, improve customer deliveries, and minimize work-in-process times. The collection of spreadsheet templates include Project Management, Simple Workcenter Scheduling, Critical Path Method (CPM), Critical Path Analysis, Customer Job Scheduling, Generating Calendars and Gantt Charts with hourly, daily or weekly time buckets.
This collection can be used as a set of building blocks to develop custom applications and visual displays because it uses simple formulas (source code provided), easily understood by the casual spreadsheet user. The spreadsheet environment is particularly suited for this since you can link, customize, expand, consolidate, copy and graph the data however you wish.
According to Chris Gates, Assistant Nuclear Reactor Maintenance Officer aboard the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier, "I had a big list of jobs I simply wanted to display on a Gantt chart in Excel for both easy of printing and sharing with maintenance team. With Spreadsheet Scheduler, I was able to copy and paste all my tasks to be scheduled and instantly provided a Gantt Report to easily communicate to my team what needed to be accomplished and when. Excel is a great tool for so many reasons but I just don't have the time to add scheduling logic, formatting logic, and more. The templates from User Solutions give me that power for the lowest cost possible."
