Pros

We were able to implement Microsoft Project and reduce one of our full time project managers down to part time. This helped us save a lot of money at a crucial time!

Cons

With this being the first time we've used such a platform it took a bit of an adjustment period for us to start thinking of all of our projects inside one box. Once you make the shift in thinking you'll never go back!

Pros

- The baseline feature for scheduling is a great tool for tracking the tender schedule against the actual schedule
- Tasks are easy to insert and move around while creating simple dependencies and links
- The printable schedule is very presentable and looks highly professional
- Clients/Owners sometimes only accept the schedule in certain formats and Microsoft Project is likely one of them

Cons

- Not the easiest to collaborate with others on, there is cloud-based software which does this better.

Pros

the ability to relatively quickly outline and prepare a project plan that can be developed into the detailed plan usable by all functional groups - engineering to manufacturing to management

Cons

It suffers from the same issue that all Microsoft products have, it is broad in capability but shallow in customization and ability to tailor the project to our specific industry and customer needs and requirements. The result is that we have to use graphics packages to prepare report or presentation materials.

A lot of industries need robust project plans, and Microsoft Project is an affordable option for them. For small companies or small projects, it is too much.

Pros

I've made masterfully complicated project plans with Microsoft Project. It was clearly built by technical people for technical projects and works great for those. When I do have large, complicated projects that will take a while to complete, I will use this to set them up and communicate to the team what needs done.

Cons

For simple projects it is overkill. The time to set up a great project plan, and then to maintain the plan, is not time-effective. There is a learning curve- making something simple can be easy to learn, but to get the full experience prepare to invest a lot of time learning the system.

It did what it said but it did get a little discombobulated when trying to figure out all the uses.

Pros

What impressed me the most was the fact that it helped me manage the start and end date of a few projects I had going.

Cons

Unfortunately the software is pricey for smaller companies. Although it did help manage our projects and helping in getting it done by the proposed date, I don't know if it is worth it for a small company like our with 30ish regular employees.

In general, it is a user-friendly software, and easy to learn it from the internet. It is a well-known software that gives you many options to manage and schedule your projects.

Pros

With this software, you can manage small projects. You can add parallel activities in a single project. you can determine the start and end time for each activity. It can also give you how much you are ahead of schedule or behind of it.

Cons

It is sometimes tricky to define working hours and holidays. I think for large projects there are better software pakages that are helpule.

Based on the experience of the use of the tool, the organizational capacity is more efficient and effective in each task, as well as the security and the status of the results offered by each member of the project. Another element to highlight is communications and how this allows improving the flow of information, thus improving the willingness of managers to take corrective action at the best times.

Pros

Of the positive things that Microsoft Project & Portfolio Management has, is that you can use a driver prioritization module to develop workshops in which executives openly discuss the issue importance of each business controller and thus be able to prioritize the strategies according to the established objectives. that's why it's an advantage to be able to prioritize commercial drivers at any level
within the organizational hierarchy Another element to highlight is the tool's management capabilities, which helps to capture the resource requirements at the beginning of the project's life cycle and all the programmed activities, providing visibility, certainty and assertive predictions about the demand future and the best thing is that it can be accessed from any device available to the members of the company.

Cons

One of the difficulties is the development of the chronogram of the different projects and the information that is offered to the teams involved in the different projects, as well as the possibility of associating one or more plans for the execution of the project and a baseline for the project. supervision, development and management and thus be able to generate changes in the various levels in a corrective manner. In addition, the implementation of the schedule change and operational capacity is difficult and prevents providing the project teams with an updated map for the execution of their tasks and therefore the delivery of a new baseline to verify progress and manage the change programmed by the bosses.
