90% of the system fails to deliver an automated solution
Problem: “When you enter 40% progress, can you validate what makes up that 40% and how you came up with that number”?
With most of the existing software, things that are driving the project (human and material resources) is having no real time relationship to project progress reporting. And you end up having a system where progress percentage is manually entered.
In traditional method, we update by dragging the Gantt chart or edit in % completion field. Using this approach, there is no relation to the resource assigned to the task and is mostly manually driven by the user. This is great simple tool. But in complex project, there is no validation of how that percentage is arrived?
You no long require to carry out manual update of progress in Gantt chart or milestone field. Just updates the activities (resources) performed and that will auto update the Gantt chart progress.
