The heart of maxQM—the WBS Scheduler

maxQM provides the WBS Listing panel—a Work Breakdown Structure manager that tracks ROMs, hours logged, planned and actual dates, and percent complete. The Milestone enforces critical-path milestones. It calculates automatically the project status.

For Microsoft Project users, the CSV feature renders the schedule in a CSV file that can be imported into Project.

Annunciator Panel

Likewise to monitoring an aircraft's status, the Annunciator panel provides team members a status of hours spent against budget and planned and actual milestone dates as indicated by color-coded annunciators (green = on-time; red = behind schedule; blue = surplus; yellow = needs a status).

Gantt Chart

maxQM features its own easy-to-reference Gantt chart. For Project users, an export to CVS is provided.

maxQM checklist

All tasks need a checklist. Without it, things can get overlooked quite easily. So when something comes to mind, hop on maxQM and get it captured with ease.

Documentation and Source Code Repository

As another proud addition, maxQM provides DocLib. Originally featured to support NELAC and CCHIT accreditations1, DocLib is an easier and efficient experience in source code and documentation management where files can be placed in one central location and checked out and in at anytime.

1 NELAC is the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and CCHIT is the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Risk Management
maxQM risk management screen

All projects need risk assessments. It is the project team's best practice to brainstorm risks before scheduling a project. Once that the project is started, update the risk management plan as the project moves through it's lifecycle. Here, the team can ask what risks can be present? How will the risks impact the schedule, personnel resources, or budget? The great news is that maxQM makes this task easy to implement.

maxQM billing

We're not done! maxQM also provides a built-in billing system that captures the hours and items worked by team members. This screen can be converted to a PDF invoice that can be sent to the customer.
