Minute Man Plus is an easy-to-use program to track multiple projects. It combines high-level cross-project overview capability with detailed critical path project management of schedule, staffing, and expenditures. If you only need to keep track of Start /end dates and staffing, with an overall Time line , then just use the Project Summary View . For those projects requiring details, you can open up each project as having 200 individual tasks and milestones, with PERT and Gantt Chart capabilities, task outline numbering, and more. Even with detailed schedules you can still step back and look at all your projects at the high level. A comprehensive multi-shift work-Calendar defines working and non-working days, and holidays. A large number of customizable reports and charts are available. Text and graphics file output capabilities are compatible with Word Processors, Spreadsheets, and Email.

In addition to scheduling, MinuteMan can assign costs to tasks and provide a graphical display of their usage. Two types of costs are supported; People-costs and Expenditures.
People-costs can be assigned using individuals (Bill, Martha, etc.) or job categories (Technician, Carpenter, Department Manager, etc). Per-hour labor costs can be assigned for each. A maximum limit can be set on the quantity available of each resource; over usage is tracked and highlighted.
Expenditures can be used to identify major cash outlays ("license fee", "tooling charge", etc) or to track use of key materials or components (need 50 Brochures in May, 500 in June, etc.).
This provides an overall project cost or budget, as well as identifying the when costs will occur.
Percentage-Completion can be tracked on a task-by-task basis, to get a sense of overall project completion. An "earned value" is calculated for individual tasks as well as the entire project.
Resource usage can be included in text reports using the Report Generator, and can also be displayed graphically using the TimeLine . Overall Usage is shown at left. Another view breaks out usage on a per-task basis.
Use On a Network
Minute Man Plus can be used in a networked environment by making use of file-sharing. Put the commonly used project files on a central file-server location in your network. Users must each have a copy of Minute Man Plus on their PC or laptop. They can then access the project files and work on them. Make sure your network administration has periodic centralized backup procedures.
Print Charts Easily
Project Management Software has some unique printing requirements - some of the charts can get quite large! To minimize the need for taping many "standard" size sheets of paper to represent one larger drawing, MinuteMan.
Supports printing of Timelines and Pert Charts on up to Size C (22"x17")
All Views (Pert, Timeline, and Work Outline) can be output to Graphics Files. You can include these files into Word Processor documents where you can shrink/stretch them as needed. Even more important, you can then email the files to others who can view them just using their own Word Processors. Many other Project Management tools require that the recipient purchase another copy of the tool just to view the charts.
The schedule may also be exported to a file format compatible with Microsoft Project or Spreadsheet programs
