Paper Abstract

In these times of austerity it is becoming more and more important to justify the need for manpower to management. Additionally, with the fast pace of today’s projects the need for tools that facilitate teams to not only plan, but also track their work, are essential. The practice of planning work packages and the associated manpower has been about for a while but little is done to really cross-check that planning against reality. In this paper these elements are brought together through a number of tools that make up the end to end process of planning, tracking and reporting of work package progress and manpower usage.
