Advanced Management Solutions announces new release of enterprise
project and resource management software suite.
New release addresses portfolio management, OLAP reporting, extensive
customization and Microsoft Project support to enhance visibility
at all levels across the enterprise.
REDLANDS, CA (November 15, 2000) - Advanced Management Solutions
(AMS), a market leader for enterprise solutions for project and resource
management, has announced the release of AMS REALTIME Version 5.2.
AMS REALTIME is used by organizations to make the most effective use
of their resources across a mix of projects and operational work.
In particular, AMS REALTIME is used to help companies better manage
their product development process, thereby accelerating time to market.
Major corporations using AMS REALTIME include Motorola, Lockheed Martin,
Pfizer and Boeing, and other high technology companies.
Major enhancements in AMS REALTIME Version 5.2 include: New project
portfolio summarization and analysis capability
OLAP (On-line Analytical Processing) reporting – enhancing reporting
across project and operational work by offering drilldown from summary
to detail levels to identify areas in need of management attention.
Users can analyze the performance and status of projects and resources
by organization, geography or other dimension.
Powerful extension and customization capability through the embedding
of an object-oriented programming language (Python) and Application
Programming Interfaces in the product. This can be used to completely
control the behavior of the software, to automate repetitive processes
and to enforce business rules. Illustrative examples of the power
of this extension and customization capability are provided with the
new release and include an integrated risk analysis module (using
Monte Carlo simulation), a ‘rules engine’ to define and enforce business
rules in entering and reviewing project data, and e-mail alerts to
notify users based on triggers or events that require action.
- Numerous improvements to enhance the user experience and to
increase user productivity in the areas of planning, resource
management, reporting, timecards and calendars.
- Integration of Microsoft Project (98 and 2000) with an enterprise
- Storage of Microsoft Project plans in the AMS REALTIME Enterprise
- Access for Microsoft Project users to centrally stored resource
information to ensure consistent resource names and definitions
are used, and resource capacity is visible.
- Microsoft Project plans can be included on timecards and status
information automatically imported back into Microsoft Project.
These enhancements further extend AMS REALTIME strengths as a solution
for businesses managing a portfolio of projects as well as ongoing
operational work, especially organizations with a matrix structure.
A recent new user of AMS REALTIME is Trusted Systems Laboratories,
a developer of internet software for encryption and security. Rance
DeLong, President and Chief Operating Officer with Trusted Systems
Laboratories commented, “AMS REALTIME will be invaluable to give
us visibility of the status of all our development projects. We
will be able to anticipate and react to changes in our business
environment, whether caused by new priorities, additional staffing,
project delays, addition of new projects, or changing project scope.”
