Intelligent1Anyplan® Activities

Traditional planning tools have simple behavior rules for how an activity can behave.

In Anyplan, the activity attributes have been extended to create more realistic plans and can adapt easily to algorithms beyond the traditional time and resource-critical calculations. Advanced cost modeling includes calculation of both fixed and variable costs.

 

 

Anyplan® Calendars
Anyplan has a powerful calendar module in which plans can share global calendars as well as specific calendars applied to activities, resources or relationships.

Calendar

Calendars may be integrated with calendars in other systems such as ERP or personal organizers (e.g. Microsoft Outlook® or mobile calendars).

Calendars can be in organizational structures with inheritance: the enterprise calendar at the top level, with regional or country calendars containing national holidays; departmental calendars at the next level down to individual resource calendars.

 


Anyplan® Resources

Resource

The Anyplan Resource Manager can be used to create and maintain resource groups and resources. Resources are applied to planning activities manually by drag and drop functionality or automatically from imported ERP information.

Anyplan Resources can be used to track planned and actual resource quantities and costs. Anyplan supports Resource Profiles or distributions that can be used to model non-linear resource consumption.
