- Deadlines (forecasted start and end) – Start date, end date, duration in days to complete (in this case applies to the activity, component or module);
- Time % - Slippage percentage of completion (in this case applies to the activity, component or module);
- Exec % - Physical percentage of completion;
- Forecasted time – forecasted hours for completion, set in forecast;
- Actual time – hours spent and counted in execution of activity, component or module;
- Available time – hours still available for the completion of the activity, component or module;
- Gantt chart presentation.
COLLECT DATA ABOUT THE PROGRESS OF THE PROJECT
The purpose of this feature is to collect data on the state of completion of operations, to get an overall progress perspective of the project. This task is available only if the project is running. Chosen data indicate the beginning of operation, end, observation, interruption, etc.
