For more than 25 years, the Norwegian Safran Solutions AS has been developing software solutions for the effective and timely handling of large and very complex projects in close collaboration with companies within the oil and gas industry. The important factors stability, performance and scalability are incorporated in their product development. Until now, Safran is a leading supplier of solutions for project management in this sector.
Recently, Safran has started using their experience for other sectors, too. The solutions Safran Project and Safran Planner are available for project managers in the sectors building and construction, defense, telecommunication, and finances. These solutions are designed for planning, controlling and optimizing large and also smaller projects in the best way possible.
The Safran applications focus on providing the ideal data overview for every decision making level during all project phases. This is achieved by using Gantt diagrams with interactive functionality. This diagram type allows a clearly-arranged representation of complex project plans no matter how large, with activities, links, sub groups, milestones and resources.
"For more than 15 years, Safran has been using the NETRONIC VARCHART library for the implementation of the Gantt and network diagrams and benefits from its versatile filter properties, great variety of options and powerful performance ", says Øyvind Røberg, Head of R&D at Safran Software Solutions.
In the Safran project management applications all parties involved in the project always access the same project status and get their relevant data filtered in easy-to-use Gantt diagrams. So they can supervise their area of responsibility in the project and on the basis of up-to-date information can change priorities or identify risks that threaten the project's progress.
