eTaskMaker Vs. Templates

InterPlan Systems has published a new white paper that looks at the relative strengths of eTaskMaker vs. a template manager in helping an organization achieve standardization of best practices in planning and estimating for STOs (turnarounds, I&Ts (inspection & testing), shutdowns, emergency outages, debottlenecking projects, revamps, catalyst regeneration, etc.). The new white paper can be found here:

eTaskMaker Wizard Software Update (1.0.1.0)

InterPlan Systems has released a major update for the eTaskMaker Wizard. eTaskMaker now allows you to define a set of parameters for a working calendar (days/week, shifts/day, hours/shift) and updates the Schedule Fragnet tab accordingly. You can now instantly see how many shifts/days the current estimate will require using your defined working calendar parameters. Additionally, there is a new “Scheduling Scenarios” tab that displays a chart that calculates the length of the current estimate in calendar days across 30 different working calendar options.

eTaskMaker clients may now download the update from our downloads repository. Clients with an Enterprise license should contact InterPlan Systems for customized updates.
