Introducing NetPoint 5.0—more robust, customizable, and interoperable than ever before
July 29, 2015
PMA Technologies is pleased to announce the latest release of NetPoint, an innovative construction planning and scheduling software tool. Updated to include many user-requested features, version 5.0 offers the ability to view differences between schedule updates visually, send comprehensive variance reports to Microsoft Excel, arrange schedules based on Primavera P6 work breakdown structures, display dates according to any country’s date format, and more!
Visual Target Mode
Automatically format activities based on whether or not they’re behind schedule and compare them against their prior positions. Adjust activities and watch their sizes and colors change dynamically as the schedule gets back on track.
Choose from three sizes and ten patterns to emphasize activities or format them based on codes or resources. Sizes and patterns make it easier for everyone to understand important details of the schedule.
Enhanced Variance Reporting
In the Targets Manager, compare any two updates against each other to determine variances in dates, durations, and floats, and export any comparison to Microsoft Excel. Adjust dates or durations on the canvas and see in real time how variances change.
Split a window into multiple views of the same network. Create two views side-by-side, two views on top and bottom, or both for a total of four. Make changes in one part of a schedule and see exactly what happens in another.
Use work breakdown structures defined in P6 to organize activities in NetPoint into more recognizable layouts.
Adding a code has gone from three clicks to one; codes and values can be edited; and assignments can be made with just a single click. Manage codes in a single, unified window, which can remain open while working with the canvas.
International Date Formats
NetPoint automatically detects your computer’s date format and displays all dates in NetPoint accordingly. This means the hundreds of date formats supported by Windows are now supported by NetPoint too.
Since its commercial release in 2008, NetPoint has proven an invaluable tool to a variety of leaders in the project controls and construction industries. PMA Technologies continues to develop innovative ideas into practical solutions that practitioners are using to inspire transparent, effective, and collaborative planning and scheduling.
