Schedule Checker A Microsoft Project Scheduling Software Add-In
Seamless Integration With Project 2010
Schedule Checker lives inside of Microsoft® Project 2010.
After installing Schedule Checker, simply start Microsoft Project.
Our scheduling software adds a new tab to the Project 2010 Ribbon menu
which contains a helpful guide on the right side of the window.
In Walkthrough mode, Schedule Checker walks you through the
process of improving your schedule. In this mode, Schedule Checker identifies
issues one by one, explains them, and shows you how to fix them. Schedule Checker
picks the order in an optimal way, so problems fixed early in the process remove issues
that would have been addressed later in the process.
A Mentor Inside of Project 2010
Schedule Checker will teach you how to write a high quality schedule in Microsoft Project.
Our scheduling software contains expertise gained from developing our Project
Analyzer product since 2006. We worked with scheduling experts from every major Aerospace
and Defense contractor to understand exactly how a critical path can become distorted and
non-trustworthy. We built that expertise into Schedule Checker and delivered a
product that is akin to having a scheduling mentor standing over your shoulder as
you develop you project's schedule.
Schedule Checker is designed around fixing your schedule, not generating problem
reports. Schedule Checker shows you the issues it finds by
highlighting them inside of Microsoft Project
Instead of generating a report that must be manually cross-checked
with your schedule, Schedule Checker takes you to the exact location of each issue
and highlights the issue for you so you can fix it at the point of occurrence.
Three Level Ignore Controls
In cases where Schedule Checker finds something that really isn't an issue, we
made it incredibly easy to tell Schedule Checker to stop flagging it as an issue.
With three-level ignore, you can tell Schedule Checker to ignore a check for a specific task,
stop checking for that issue with a particular schedule, or stop checking for
that issue in any schedule.
Critical Path Before and After Indicator
As you fix your schedule, Schedule Checker shows you how the critical path has
changed with a graphical before and after indicator. As it changes, you'll
see the direct result of your work; a more accurate critical path.
