Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

We've finally gone live with the download and subscription portals for our MSP add-in.

For the professional project manager, scheduler, administrator, or consultant working with Microsoft Project (2010+), BPC Logic Filter is a tool that fills the gaps between Project’s native functionality and the requirements of logic-driven schedule management in complex projects where Total Slack is insufficient.

1. Logic Checkers provide schedule quality reporting as well as dynamic filter controls for targeted review and correction of schedule logic issues.  (Open-ends, danglers, duplicate names, summary-logic, leads/lags, out-of-sequence progress, etc.)

2. Logic Tracers provide filtered or highlighted views of logic paths to and from any task in the project.  Including:

  • A refined QuickTrace macro, with results matching built-in "Task Path" bar styles;
  • Driving, near-driving, and slack paths to any task (more accurate than built-in "Task Path" bar styles);
  • Critical Path and Near-Critical Paths (i.e. Longest Path and Near-Longest Paths, including path relative float);
  • Resource Driving/Critical (and Near-Driving/Critical) Paths;
  • Logic paths through multiple projects (in linked master/sub-project structures).

3. Task Logic Inspector provides detailed predecessor and successor information:

  • More accurate than built-in tools like "Task Inspector";
  • Includes user-selected fields;
  • Provides for logic-based navigation (i.e. Jump/GoTo) forward and backward through the schedule network.

4.  All modes support extreme user customization.
