Hi All,

I am lookingfor advice on software. Currently working on Projects within Pharma industry, we have a Roadmap developed in Excel showing all the projects between 2018 and 2023 (ususlly 5yr rolling calendar). This roadmap has all the major highlevel milestones of the project such as C&Q completion, engineering runs, PV batches, regulatory submissions and approvals.

As we have quite a few (approx 40 projects) on this roadmap, so is looking very busy as I often need to include in prenstations for senior site & corporate mangament.

Can anyone advise of software package that allows yo uto develop highlevel roadmap miletsone plans that can be easily transferred into presentations while allow you to easily show any changes made from previous version.

Many thanks

Mike

Zoltan, I expect that any software can import data from Excel.

Hard requirement is exporting project plan to presentation.

Can P6 do this?

Primavera P6 

you can take those plans in excel and import them into p6 saves you a lot of time. You can roll up or drill down ot whatever level that you want to

Have you considered using MS project? It has all the features you need. I also like Asta powerproject. It's a nice tool to have.

Hi Mike,

This would be easy to acheive in Asta Powerproject - and possbily even in our entry-level tool, Asta Easyplan, depending on number of milestones per project.

If you want to email us your Excel spreadsheet (you can remove sensitive names), we'll knock up an example and play that back to you?  Email: sales@elecosoft.com. 

Cheers,

Ben @ Asta Powerproject
