The heart of project planning
Activities and Milestones
Every project starts with a plan. It’s even better still when this plan is also structured according to a useful hierarchy. Merlin Project lets you create complex procedural structures with dependencies between individual activities and groups, set the duration of individual activities, and define fixed milestones - all within minutes. You will be awestruck at how an accurate project plan develops right before your eyes, just like magic.
Time Planning and Costs
You can define much more than just the project plan in the project’s work breakdown - it’s also your time- and cost-planning tool in Merlin Project. Use it to enter your budgets and the actual costs for activities, respond to time-plan changes, and update your project’s progress. Doing so gives you complete oversight of your plan at all times, allowing you to take targeted action in response to changes.
If you regularly plan projects which are similar or have recurring structures, you don’t need to start from scratch each time with Merlin Project. Instead, simply store your recurring structural components in Merlin Project’s Library to use it for a new project at the single click of a mouse button. This lets you populate entire projects in a flash using the Library. Hopefully you already know what you’re going to do with all the time you’ve freed-up.
