Creating a Schedule

A schedule is how Odin encases a group of projects. Projects must be allocated to a schedule. This means a schedule must exist before you create any projects. Odin automatically creates a schedule with the same name as your username so you can get started right away. But you can create as many schedules as you like.

Scheduling can be automated in Odin. Once created Odin can automatically forecast the work, auto-select resources and set them in queues for updating. Schedules can be re-run at anytime, after any update and will take into account completed works and the resource that completed them. The new schedule will create a Schedule Version which will contain all past updates; the future set of works and allocations to attain a completed program of works.

New schedules (Schedule Generation) are used to re-forecast the future, show delays or time savings and re-load resources with new works. It will analyse the cause of shrinkage or expansion in the schedule and make a reference of it as a significant event in the complexity of all cascading projects. This information should be highlighted to prevent similiar circumstances in the future. Odin uses information like this as a feedback loop in resource ratings.

If enabled, Odin will even try to auto-recover delays by interchanging or increasing resource applications in accordance with a preset directive.

To create a Schedule, navigate to /schedules and click the Create button.

You'll need to fill in a few details before clicking save.

  1. Schedule Name - used as a reference throughout Odin
  2. Schedule Directive - used to automatically preference resource choices in project delivery. This preference will drive Odin to statistically analyse resources and allocate work to produce a schedule optimized and tuned to your business goals.
