Nialli Design planner - Set up your plans

Set up your plans

Nialli Design Planner makes it simple to create swim lanes that organize your plans into work areas. Each organization, group or discipline can be assigned their own color for easy visual identification. Users are then added to the plan and assigned permission levels based on their roles.

 

Nialli Design Planner - Add milestones

Add milestones

Once a plan has been set up, it’s easy to add milestones – either by inputting them manually or importing them from a Microsoft Excel® file. Use color coding to identify different types of milestones, creating clear visual cues for your team.

 

Nialli Design Planner - Add activities and deliverables

Add activities and deliverables

Each group or discipline can use Nialli Design Planner’s intuitive tools to add their own activities. There’s room to include expected completion date and the person responsible. You can also use tags in the calendar to make a commitment to a task completion date.

 

Nialli Design Planner - Set up relationships

Set up relationships

While creating activities, teams can also identify predecessors and place them in the parking lot – staying there until added to the calendar by the responsible party. Predecessors can also be identified by dragging a connector line from the successor to the predecessor activity.

 

Nialli Design Planner - Identify constraints

Identify constraints

Don’t be caught off guard by unknown constraints. When you add them to an activity, a yellow dot shows up on the tag for everyone to see (it will disappear when the constraint is complete). All constraints will also be added to the Constraint Log for review or distribution to the team.

 

Nialli Design Planner - Indicate status

Indicate status

Teams can show the status of their activities during planning sessions, which they can join from the office or the jobsite. Live track the Percent Plan Complete (PPC) with in-app reporting, watching weekly trends to measure team performance.

 

Nialli Design Planner - Gain insights
