SNAP I2M empowers project managers by allowing them to focus on the analysis and execution of a project's scope of work rather than the administrative, man-power intensive, processes required to create and integrate the tens to thousands of individual schedules and tasks required for a given project.
Arlington, VA (PRWEB) March 11, 2008
As the business environment becomes more competitive and complex, the ability to organize and manage a diverse portfolio of projects is critical. Template's patent pending SNAP® I2M software, designed for global information sharing, enables the systematic approach needed to optimize the integrity and consistency of an organization's project management infrastructure.
A key feature of SNAP I2M is the ability to utilize enterprise data to drive a project's scheduling process. As a configurable and highly flexible commercial software tool, SNAP I2M can be implemented to rapidly integrate data from a variety of disparate sources. Utilizing a web-based interface, I2M users can then organize their enterprise data into structured programs that are in line with project objectives. Finally, a configurable rule engine can be applied to intelligently create the required inter-linked schedules for a given project, directly within an organization's existing project management software.
Template's Vice President of Software Development, Dave Hillman, commented on the benefits of a systematic approach to project ramp-up, "SNAP I2M empowers project managers by allowing them to focus on the analysis and execution of a project's scope of work rather than the administrative, man-power intensive, processes required to create and integrate the tens to thousands of individual schedules and tasks required for a given project."
SNAP I2M is implemented at one of the world's largest automotive manufacturers where it automatically creates the appropriate planning schedules for every part and major assembly of each vehicle program being managed. Rather than spending time on the labor intensive process of ramping up a project's schedules, beneficiaries of I2M simply log into their project management software to see the scheduling infrastructure for each program already created. Because business rules, configured to evaluate source engineering data, are used to trigger a schedule's creation, the planning for each vehicle program is consistent and in-step with global processes and policies unique to the business.
Built with a highly flexible and portable COTS platform that can dynamically adapt to a wide variety of domains, SNAP I2M offers exceptional value to organizations looking to optimize and integrate their data-driven processes. Applicable across the automotive and greater manufacturing markets, SNAP I2M helps organizations save time, money, and resources through increased automation, consistency, and the intelligent integration of data and existing applications.
