“Working with project templates in BCS is super convenient, simple and very time-saving. I read through the documentation at the beginning and after ten minutes I was able to create a project template and create a project from it.”

"BCS es una herramienta de gestión fiable e indispensable para que gestionemos nuestros proyectos de forma eficiente y utilicemos nuestros recursos de forma sensata y selectiva. En BCS conseguimos recorrer fácilmente los pasos de planificación utilizando los asistentes. Los empleados que quieren realizar tareas más complejas en la planificación de proyectos pueden hacerlo llamando directamente a las máscaras."

"Not only during project execution and for internal STL project controlling BCS provides more transparency, but already during the planning phase towards the customer: Even the first rough planning can be shared with the customer via BCS. In this way, the entire procedure and also the estimated efforts and budgets become more comprehensible for STL customers."

"What we particularly appreciate about Projektron BCS is the combination of project planning and resource control, as well as the fine-grained rights structure, which allows differentiated views of the project participants from different departments."

"The flexibility of the software greatly accommodated the recurring change requirements here. Today, templates are used for typical planning objects, which support the creation of new components or projects, for example, and ensure a standardization of structures. The administrative effort could thus be reduced and the concentration on the content increased."

Planning and managing material costs: simple and efficient in BCS

Discover the comprehensive functions of BCS for the efficient management of material costs in your projects! With the "Material cost plan" view in the Projects workspace, you can easily record internal costs for material services and external services in one place and edit them in detail. Use planned material costs as a reference for recording costs incurred at different levels of your project - be it at project, sub-project, work package or task level.

Inserting new planned and actual material costs? No problem! You can easily insert them via the action menu and even drag and drop them in edit mode. Benefit from the option of defining planned internal costs and sales prices as well as displaying and editing descriptions from the master data of the non-personnel costs. Best of all, actual material costs can be easily copied and linked to planned material costs, while external suppliers can be easily linked to material costs for detailed sales analysis.

You can easily duplicate planned material costs. And thanks to the new material cost plan tree view at project group level, you always have an overview. Individual sub-views for overall and interval planning as well as the option of filtering according to various properties in tree views make analysis and evaluation child's play.

But that's not all: cost accounting and billability details are already preset, and expected travel and expenses can also be easily entered as planned non-personnel costs. Simply assign a corresponding cost type and off you go! These comprehensive functions make managing and monitoring your non-personnel costs in projects easier than ever before. Experience BCS and optimize your project work today!

Project planning at intervals: Orders, effort planning and material cost planning

Project planning in intervals with the tools in Projektron enables the distribution of order values, planned efforts of employees and material costs to specific time intervals. It provides detailed and time-based control over the resources and costs of a project in time slices.

  • Order planning allows you to define order values for the project in monthly, quarterly or annual intervals. You can define these values manually for each interval or have them distributed automatically on the basis of a total order value.
  • With effort planning without intervals in Projektron BCS, you enter the total effort that each employee should spend on a task. With effort planning in intervals, you can specify how much effort an employee should spend on a task per interval. This procedure can be particularly useful for projects and tasks with long durations.
  • Material cost planning in intervals allows you to create planned material costs for the project in monthly, quarterly or annual intervals. Here too, you can either distribute the costs manually or have the tool automatically distribute them evenly over the intervals.
