What is the Schedule Toolkit?

The Schedule Toolkit’s primary objective is to help enhance the project planning process and ultimately drive improvements in successful delivery of projects to time and budget.

We do this in two ways: first, by providing automation tools to planners & schedulers that generally make life easier, freeing up time that can be better spent ‘planning’ and secondly, by providing the rest of the project community with intelligent access to the project schedule in a format they can understand and derive most value from.

Devised by project professionals, the schedule toolkit is a cost effective, easy to use software application that converts data from complex planning software packages (such as Primavera P6, Asta Power Project, and Microsoft Project,) and enables you to view and analyse the information within the familiar surroundings of Microsoft Excel.

From Project Directors to the troops on the ground, everyone involved with delivering projects can benefit from having the Toolkit to hand. The toolkit will repay your investment on first use, so join the 2,000+ companies using the toolkit today.

Benefits to Planners

“With each of the project team having the Schedule Toolkit, I can use my time more efficiently to plan. Each member of the project team can use the Toolkit to open XER or MPP files in Excel and has more enhanced viewing, editing and presenting control than with standard planning software. This accessibility increases each team member’s input and buy-in to the programme resulting in more confidence in on-time delivery. I particularly like the Earned Value, Dashboard and Schedule quality functions which are all in excel and which enable significantly more control and simple management of the outputs.”

Schedule Quality

Benefits to Project Managers

“In just a few clicks, the Schedule Toolkit allows me to open a Primavera or Microsoft Project file in Excel. This means I have more enhanced and simple to use key management functions than I did with a simple PDF. For the first time, I have complete interaction with my programme and I can easily apply filters, create look-aheads, update progress and even break down activities to my preferred level of detail and annotate to my heart’s content. A key benefit is the ability to share the programme, in Excel, with the project stakeholders and therefore eliminate specialist software and improve communication and understanding."

Project Schedule in Excel

Benefits to Commercial Managers

"The unique thing about the Schedule Toolkit is that I can produce my own earned value report at any time of the project, at the fraction of the time it normally takes, with all outputs in Excel. Change can be captured at site level directly within the Toolkit and issued back to the Planner to incorporate into the main programme, thus promoting commercial awareness. I can also analyse activity movement through multiple programme revisions by pressing a single button to establish a list of change activities"

Earned Value S-Curve Chart

Benefits to Procurement Managers

“The Schedule Toolkit allows me to see what I need and when I need it through an array of standard reporting functions. The ability to extract a procurement schedule and the allowances from the cost loaded programme quickly and efficiently is great and I can also extract associated quantities and rates in Excel, ensuring orders are placed against the correct allowance. Each time the programme is updated, I simply press the 'Filter' button to update the procurement schedule.”

Benefits to Operation Directors

“I’m impressed with the Schedule Toolkit's function to connect to the planning database across multiple projects. I can now see on a week-by-week basis my resource requirements across all of my entire project portfolio. This allows me to better plan use of staff and labour resource as well as major plant items. This is not to mention I can produce an Earned Value Analysis report anytime I wish across the project I am interested in.”

Milestone Summary Report

Benefits to Site Engineers

“The Schedule Toolkit enables me to interact with the programme without having to use planning software and the need to request various outputs from the Planner. In Excel I can quickly generate a look-ahead, add my own detailed activities and update progress. In a single click I can view quantities and allowances to reconcile the materials onsite. I feel completely in-touch with the programme and efficiently managing the information flow to and from the Planner.”

4 Week Lookahead Schedule

Benefits to Design Managers

“Through the Schedule Toolkit, I can see my design resource requirements and generate my design schedule with the click of a button; I can then simply add resources to manage my design team and this is then sent back to the Planner for incorporation into the main programme. When the main programme is updated, I can repeat the process to maintain compliance with the project deliverables.”

Design Submission Dates

Benefits to Clients

“The Schedule Toolkit allows me to communicate and work with my contractors schedules without the need to purchase expensive planning software. The Schedule Quality function allows me to set my own quality parameters to check the programme’s compliance with a specific contract, such as NEC3. With pre-defined, quick access buttons, I can instantly view specific activities, activity schedules and cost expenditure. What is great is being able to select my preferred level in which to view the schedule which means I can simply focus on a high level view if I wish.”
