RE: MS Project 2000

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I worked with MS Project 1997 and also Harvard Project
Manager (HPM). I used these programs for planning both
construction and consulting projects. In my opinion,
HPM is more capable for project scheduling, specially
for consulting projects that need kind of work
breakdown procedure. Unfortunately I worked with HPM
some years ago, and I don't know about any new version
for Windows. But in the other side, MS Project
provides great possibilities for linking this program
to other Microsoft programs, such as Excell. In this
way I created some worksheets on Excell that allow me
to estimate projects and then send the results to MS
Project for time scheduling purposes. Also MS Project
results are transferable to Excell to get more output
from project tracking.
Hope that you find this helpful,
