NetPoint® is the only application that combines the power of the GPM® algorithm with a highly visual and user-friendly interface. The result is a uniquely flexible tool that enables individuals and teams to plan forward and backward, build schedules faster, and communicate the project timeline more clearly than ever.
Build a schedule that better reflects real-world conditions by placing activities anywhere within their total float range, without constraining 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!
Draw and link activities right on the canvas, without forcing them to align to rows in a spreadsheet, and position multiple activities on the same line. This new flexibility makes project planning far more natural and intuitive for everyone. Group activities by WBS, by work area, or by business unit, and customize link geometries to clearly represent important network paths. Finally, project schedules that can be understood by the whole project team.
A fast method for optimizing schedule appearance. GEM™ activates all data elements on the canvas for simultaneous positioning and formatting.
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.
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.
Since activities can be drawn and stretched in either direction, late-dates mode allow projects to be more naturally planned backward from the project end date.
By plotting histogram graphs and curves directly underneath activities, resource-leveling becomes a truly interactive and engaging exercise.
Update and maintain the schedule during project execution and produce reports and timelines that convey up-to-date project status for 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.
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.
Establish a baseline schedule, commit project updates, and compare variances between dates, durations, and float values. Export to Excel for more flexible analysis.
All of the standard bells and whistles you’ve come to expect in an industry-leading project management tool.
NetPoint® conveniently interfaces with several third-party applications through importing and exporting of schedule data.
