(1888PressRelease) August 10, 2010 - The GanttChart for ClearQuest tool has proved to be a very successful add-on for the ClearQuest system. It significantly simplifies the planning process in ClearQuest. Standard integration of IBM Rational ClearQuest and MS Project allows solving a number of same tasks that GanttChart solves, but with GanttChart it is much more convenient to work with a large number of heterogeneous relations between change requests, including hierarchical and sequential relations. Besides, there is no need to use two tools at the same time - a project manager can well do with ClearQuest with GanttChart add-on installed.
Our experts have gained much use from this tool. GanttChart flexible settings allow configuring the necessary representation of a Gantt chart to be displayed. Every user has got an opportunity to build "their own" Gantt chart, where they can see the set of tasks assigned to them, and every task can be highlighted by a necessary color depending on its status, that allows the user to organize their working time in the better way. Additionally GanttChart has particularly flexible creating a Gantt chart with any queries», says Christian Häussler, IT Software Development Manager, HUK Coburg AG, Germany.
