Asta Powerproject version 13 extends its functionality to streamline tasks within a project more effectively, allowing users to analyze resource and cost more accurately.
INDIANAPOLIS (PRWEB) February 24, 2015
Asta Development is launching the latest upgrade to Asta Powerproject, a comprehensive project management product suite. Since its launch in 1988, Asta Powerproject has evolved and improved continuously – driven by regular feedback from users and by making use of the latest technologies available. Asta Powerproject version 13 is a continuation of that evolution.
Asta Powerproject version 13 extends its functionality to streamline tasks within a project more effectively, allowing users to analyze resource and cost more accurately. The new features allow tasks to be linked automatically as they are created or selected, handing more control over a project back to the user, and taking all levels of skill availability into account when checking the availability of permanent resources.
Alongside the program’s current benefits, some of the other key features new in this release allow the user to:
· Analyze resource and cost center usage daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly
· Link tasks automatically as they are created or selected
· Neck summary tasks and hammocks to show the location of subordinate tasks
· Highlight actual and constrained Start and Finish dates in the spreadsheet
· Specify permanent resource availability at different skill levels
· Specify the type of cost to which cost related fields refer
By continuing to integrate its customers’ feedback into future upgrades of its technology, Asta Development has built an easy-to-use, scalable and powerful tool that is widely relied upon to support project activity at all levels of complexity.
Asta Powerproject is a class-leading project, portfolio and resource management software solution, available in stand-alone and enterprise versions. It is used successfully throughout the world on projects of all sizes and by all industry sectors.
The software was originally developed for the AEC industry and is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading project management software solutions for construction. It is used on all types of projects including house building and general commercial building such as schools, offices and hospitals, as well as road and rail construction and maintenance.
This latest release is compatible with a BIM version to be released in the USA soon, which brings 4D planning within affordable reach by combining 3D planning and scheduling in one application. Asta Powerproject BIM incorporates features that enable 4D planning, drive greater collaboration, and deliver communication, time and efficiency benefits.
