Multiple concurrent projects competing for shared resources is at the very focus of Multi-Project-Planner.
The project activities are booked on a schedule, common to all work teams.
I.e. the Gantt charts of the projects are superimposed upon this common schedule.
This way both resource allocation and the interrelationships between the activities are handled in one and the same view. A feature called 'Hot potatoes' lets the system keep track of all the loose ends and little things while you concentrate on the planning issues at large or on a single issue at a time. Employees can be automaticaly allocated to work teams based on competencies and avaliability. Template projects can be formulated and dropped on the schedule several times. Just in time planning is possible using template projects and the "Best Fit Monitor". Decision points can be attached to each project activity. They will raise a flag when due.
