Important features of Project 2013 Standard Edition for efficient project management
The main goal of MS Project 2013 Standard Edition is to make the planning and execution of projects clear and simple in every phase right from the start. This already starts with the creation of a new task: With the Project Center integrated in Project 2013, users can create a new project in just a few steps, even without much prior knowledge. To do this, they also choose from many predefined templates and import the relevant information from Excel, for example. Project managers who are already familiar with Project 2013 can also create an empty project with an unfilled Gantt chart or open an older project for this purpose. Many intuitively usable features and tools enable the differentiated identification of all resources as well as the precise tracking of the project progress, including the creation of reports for all decisive phases. In addition, the optimized desktop interface allows users to quickly capture all essential information, so that they always have an overview of all details.
Efficient resource management with Project 2013 Standard
One of the central tasks of project management is the clear administration of all available resources. In MS Project Standard 2013, the two views "Resource table" and "Resource information" are available for this purpose.
Project 2013 Standard distinguishes between three types of resources: labor, material and costs.
- Under "Labor" - depending on the type of project - both people and machines can be specified. These can be further supplemented by a calendar for working hours or unavailable times as well as hourly rates or maximum units.
- In the "Material" section, all typical consumables and their quantities are recorded.
- In "Costs", a distinction can be made between those that are incurred only once or periodically.
For the exact entry and definition of the respective resource type, in addition to the exact specification of the resource name, an e-mail address for direct communication - also via Lync, if used -, a separate login account as well as a code for identification, and also a free text field for resource allocation can be used. Furthermore, under "Booking type", a distinction can be made between committed and scheduled resources, which defines the respective availability in more detail, in addition to further input options for costs or budget and material - here, further options for additional specifications such as "Generic", "Active" or "Inactive", etc. are available.
In addition, Project 2013 Standard allows further differentiation between resources that are available to the entire company - so-called "Enterprise resources", which are managed by an administrator -, as well as local resources that can only be used by a specific project manager, and generic resources for the more precise definition of individual skills.
For better planning of resources, especially in the case of many or particularly extensive projects, various automations are available in Project 2013 Standard that simplify project planning. For example, the program indicates when a resource is allocated to two simultaneous tasks. All changes made within a project automatically affect all other components affected by them.
Timelines in Project 2013 Standard for greater clarity
With the timeline view, project managers can keep track of more complex and long-term processes with MS Project 2013 Standard. The Gantt bar chart provides a differentiated snapshot of the current status, showing the most important tasks and milestones; this can also be used for reporting.
Individual task paths in a Gantt chart can be highlighted using the "Task Path" menu of the same name on the task bars for better clarity. By clicking on a specific task, the respective paths are displayed in their own color to make them stand out from the others.
Professional reporting in MS Project Standard 2013
Both during an ongoing project and after its completion, the creation of informative reports is one of the Standard-tasks in project management, to document the current status, as well as to describe important phases, or to use the representation of the entire project progress as a template for future similar tasks. Dynamic burndown reports can also be written in MS Project Standard 2013, showing planned as well as completed phases and work in a line diagram alongside the baseline plan, showing at a glance whether the schedule for the project in question is being met.
Microsoft Project 2013 includes matching report templates for all types of report creation, as well as table format templates and tools, views, drawing and charting tools, etc., to document key baseline schedule values such as duration, work, costs and dates in varying depths, as needed.
Reports created for an ongoing project are automatically adjusted and thus always contain up-to-date information. In addition, a split view is also available in Project 2013 Standard to observe or control how the report changes as the data is updated in real time.
