NetPoint

Planning and scheduling together.

Free Trial

Plan and schedule collaboratively with a uniquely visual interface in one seamless process.

 

Engage the whole team! NetPoint® transforms scheduling into an interactive, planning-centric experience that ensures communication and collaboration.

 

With NetPoint’s intuitive representation of activities and relationships, all stakeholders can come together in a seamless process that produces a CPM/GPM® logic-driven schedule from the same tool used for planning.

New Features in Version 5.3

The latest version of NetPoint includes much requested features such as a resizable timescale, savable filters, and the ability to add headers and footers.

Breakthrough innovations in scheduling

 

NetPoint combines the power of the GPM algorithm with a highly visual, user-friendly interface to produce a uniquely flexible tool that empowers individuals and teams to plan forward and backward, build schedules faster, and communicate the project timeline more clearly than ever.

Planned Dates

Build a schedule that better reflects real-world conditions by placing activities anywhere within their total float range, without constraining float.

Forensic Float

Since GPM® doesn’t rely on early & late dates for network calculations, float values are preserved left of the data date – particularly useful in retrospective schedule analysis

And More

 

  • Toggle date modes (early, planned, late)
  • Real-time schedule calculations
  • Self-healing network logic
  • As-built critical path

Superior graphical interface

 

The flexibility of NetPoint’s graphical interface makes project planning far more natural and intuitive for everyone. The results are project schedules that can be understood by the whole project team.

 

  • Draw and link activities right on the canvas
  • Position multiple activities on the same line
  • Group activities by WBX, by work area, or by business unit
  • Customize geometries to clearly represent important network paths

Global Edit Mode

A fast method for optimizing schedule appearance. GEM™ activates all data elements on the canvas for simultaneous positioning and formatting.

PolyTime®

Choose the time-unit best suited to your project, from minutes up to years. Great for depicting the appropriate timescale on a summary schedule, or for micro-planning time-sensitive turnarounds.

And More

 

  • Multiple activities per line
  • Object styles
  • Real-time canvas interaction

Dynamic & responsive project planning

 

Gone are the days of pressing F9 and waiting for the schedule to calculate and update. With GPM’s real-time and self-healing rules, dates, durations, logic relationships, and the critical path all refresh in real-time, as the schedule is modified. It’s never been easier to anticipate critical activities, highlight the critical path for everyone to see, and evaluate alternative planning or resource-driven scenarios on the fly.

Backward Planning

Since activities can be drawn and stretched in either direction, late-dates mode allows projects to be more naturally planned backward from the project end date.

Visual Resource Modeling

By plotting histogram graphs and curves directly underneath activities, resource-leveling becomes a truly interactive and engaging exercise.

And More

 

  • Dynamic critical path analysis
  • Multiple calendars
  • Custom non-work days
  • Weather modeling

Robust tools for schedule maintenance

 

Update and maintain the schedule during project execution and produce reports and timelines that convey up-to-date project status to key stakeholders, all right from NetPoint®. The visual interface makes it easy to review the schedule network and make necessary adjustments so that a record of the actual work sequence – and even the critical path – can be retained.

Schedule Updating

Insert a data-date and receive immediate visual feedback on the activities falling behind schedule. Watch the notification counter decrease as activities are actualized or updated to reflect changes in work.

Target Comparisons

Establish a baseline schedule, commit project updates, and compare variances between dates, durations, and float values. Export to Excel for more flexible analysis.

And More

 

  • Constraint flags
  • Activity filters
  • Activity codes
  • Search within a schedule
