User Solutions, Inc
Low cost and easy-to-use spreadsheet templates for Project Management, Scheduling Customer Jobs and Employees, Generating Calendars and Gantt Charts. The Spreadsheet Scheduler is a toolkit containing 14 ready-to-use, practical models for a variety of common scheduling problems. The models are spreadsheet templates that work with all popular spreadsheets.
Scheduling problems tend to be specific to the operating
procedures of a particular business. Therefore, this collection
can be used as a set of building blocks to develop custom
applications. The spreadsheet environment is particularly
suited for this since you can link, customize, expand, and
consolidate the data however you wish.
The 14 spreadsheet-based programs provide an easy-to-use set of tools to help any organization manage projects more efficiently, improve customer deliveries, and minimize work-in-process times.
How does it Work
The Spreadsheet Scheduler includes
Gantt Charting and CPM (Critical Path Management) models for
hourly, daily, or weekly time units.
By determining early and late starting points for each task, as well as task duration and precedence relationships, the template generates a Gantt Chart showing which tasks are critical; that is, must be done on time, otherwise the entire schedule will slip.
Work flow and work-in-process models provide techniques for scheduling customer jobs through single workstations, workstations in series, or workstations in parallel. These models enable more efficient planning and accurate customer deliveries through minimizing average flow time, number of days late for jobs, and number of late jobs.
Functionality also includes ability to do "what-if" analysis to accommodate changes without missing deadlines.
The scheduling techniques include:
These techniques can be extracted and assembled in many different ways.
