Acclaro Scheduler Overview
Tired of new features or changing requirements causing chaos, delays and cost overruns in your OO software development programs? Rescue your projects in trouble with Acclaro Scheduler for Rational Rose�.
FACT: The number 1 cause of late projects is changing requirements
Most technology managers have learned this lesson the hard way. Their response, until now, has been to work on better requirements and planning for the next project. But that doesn't help projects that are already in progress, in trouble, or released into the field. What managers really need is a tool which they can drop into their existing projects and processes and dramatically improve their ability to manage the inevitable changes to requirements which cause the majority of projects to fail. That tool is Acclaro Scheduler for Rational Rose.
Acclaro Scheduler for Rational Rose provides program managers, architects and developers with answers to several critical questions:
- What is the impact of a change?
- How long will it take to implement?
- What does a new, optimal project workplan look like?
- How should I allocate staff to my projects?
At the heart of the Acclaro Scheduler is a sophisticated, patented engine based on axiomatic design technology developed under license from MIT and awarded Industry Week's Technology of the Year. Using this powerful technology, Acclaro Scheduler allows you to analyze your design model for circular dependencies and produce optimal single-pass coding and test sequencing strategies.
You can leverage these workplans to create and maintain your Microsoft Project schedules from your design models automating hundreds of hours of tedious bookkeeping allowing you to spend more time adding real value to projects through resource allocation and leveling.
Best of all, Acclaro Scheduler works with the tools and processes you use today and mines these answers from information that's hiding in your Rational Rose models. As a result, Acclaro Scheduler can be leveraged on your existing projects with no risk, realizing an immediate return on investment. How?
- No proprietary information to enter: near zero learning curve.
- Works as a point tool: doesn't require your entire team to use it.
- Readily deployable: can be utilized at any stage of development from initial design to legacy change.
- Process independent: drop-in compatibility with any process, including RUP, XP, Use-Case Driven, Feature Driven, or no process at all.
