Deltek Open Plan Capabilities: Faster Data Analysis for Stronger Business Performance
Get a consistent approach to planning and scheduling across all phases of a project or program.
With Deltek Open Plan, you can reduce surprises, increase forecast predictability, and manage profitability. Here's how:
SUPPORT ENTERPRISE-LEVEL PROGRAM MANAGEMENT
Balancing limited resources across multiple projects is a challenge for many organizations. To achieve this balance, business managers need the ability to review work across the corporate portfolio. They also require the ability to instantly see the impact of an individual project's performance on the rest of the program so that they can better manage project priorities. Deltek Open Plan offers business managers those exact capabilities by providing a comprehensive set of tools for informed decision-making and optimal program management.
Deltek Open Plan allows projects to be prioritized, ensuring that resource allocation always reflects an organization's overall business objectives. For maximum efficiency, resource managers can create and share Resource Breakdown Structures across the entire enterprise. Resources can either be allocated manually according to skill and availability, or Open Plan can automatically present solutions that take into account target dates and resource usage across multiple projects—giving you options that work best with your unique company practices.
IMPROVE PROJECT PLANNING
In today's fast-paced business environments, project managers need to be able to turn around information as quickly as possible. Deltek Open Plan not only facilitates fast and realistic planning through rapid data entry and analysis, but also empowers powerful reporting on project status and progress.
IMPROVE SCHEDULE QUALITY
User-defined validation rules add another level of scheduling control and maturity, by warning users that entered data does not comply with industry best practices, company policy or requirements from federal agencies like the DCMA. This enhances schedule quality and reduces the amount of re-work required by both clients and agencies after schedules are submitted.
