MS Project in construction
Microsoft Project is a tool for project management, but it lacks some of the features necessary to handle construction project tasks in native way. It is possible to add functionality with an MS Project add-in like Construction Project (CP).
C-Tasks allow the user to assign full physical volumes to MS Project tasks, calculate multiple costs based on resources assigned, set contractors, manage task duration from a productivity point of view and play with other construction-specific parameters.
In addition, there are F-Tasks which are used to manage payments and design payment schedules based on C-Task progress. P-Tasks are designed to handle procurement of goods and services needed for C-Task to perform effectively.
