The Schedule Toolkit is a versatile application that can be used to view and analyse project schedules developed within Oracle’s Primavera, Microsoft Project or Asta Power Project.
The Toolkit operates entirely within Microsoft Excel and allows you to view data from MPP (Microsoft Project) files, XER (Primavera) files or by connecting directly to your Primavera P6 database. All features are designed to promote schedule visibility, awareness and ultimately help drive improvements in schedule quality. All outputs are produced in standard Excel workbooks that can be easily shared and edited by non-Toolkit or planning software users.
By providing the entire project community with tools that allow them to engage with the planning process, the Toolkit can facilitate wider distribution and greater understanding of the project schedule. As a result, broader participation in the schedule’s development and maintenance life cycle is achieved and, ultimately, this helps drive project delivery.
In addition to its Primavera, Microsoft Project and Asta Power Project schedule viewing capability, there are also a range of advanced schedule diagnostic tools that can aid Planners to efficiently build more technically robust schedules.
The Schedule Toolkit is our passion and, through the support and commitment of Spencer Group to it’s development, we are very excited by future possibilities and opportunities yet to be realised.
Based in the UK, Spencer Group celebrates 25 years in business this year.
