Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Project Server

Microsoft Project Server is used as a forecasting and scheduling tool within my organization. The software is intermittently used across the whole organization in addition to other more complex scheduling tools. Microsoft Project Server works well for our simpler forecasting and scheduling needs. It is more user-friendly than other software, therefore allowing people with little or no experience to jump right in.
  • User-friendly in managing simple schedules
  • Allows for scheduling, resourcing and budgeting collaboration
  • Good tool for someone with no scheduling experience
  • Resource loading and leveling extremely complicated within the tool
  • Software makes incorrect assumptions and changes without user knowledge
  • Inconsistencies within the tool make it hard to predict & troubleshoot
  • Allowed us to introduce scheduling at a level that people could understand
  • Cost-efficient tool
  • Tons of resources for training
Microsoft Project Server has proved to be well suited when managing simple projects without a ton of interdependencies and resourcing needs. It works well with managing forecast and baseline dates. The software is less appropriate when the scheduling needs are more complex. Although it does allow for collaboration amongst scheduling, budgeting, resourcing and risk analysis, it is probably not the best tool when those needs are complex.
