Asta Powerproject is a construction project management tool that, according to Asta Development, is used by 45 of the United Kingdom's top 50 contractors.
Users of Asta Powerproject can create hierarchical structures for projects and sub-projects based on internal workflows; they can link tasks across projects to identify relationships, the vendor said. Reports, meanwhile, can be tailored to individual recipients, from high-level reports for senior management to task lists for subcontractors.
This construction project management software can also produce cash flow forecasts and perform earned value analysis; create subcontractor task lists, which can be exported as PDF or Excel files or viewed using the free Asta Project Viewer; use Gantt charts to link task items within a construction schedule and perform a critical path analysis of a schedule.
Add-ons to Asta Powerproject include the following:
Asta Executive Reporting, which includes customized reports;
Asta Project Analyzer, which can compare two project plans as a means of resolving disputes or determining the cause of variances;
Asta Siteprogress, which lets site managers enter report data in the field; this data is then automatically updated in Asta Powerproject;
Asta Risk Analysis, which uses Monte Carlo simulations to determine how critical a task is to the successful outcome of a project, and
Asta Powernet, which lets users display task relationships in a network diagram instead of a bar chart.
The enterprise version of Asta Powerproject lets multiple users access the same project task information at the same time. It is also designed to collect data from multiple job sites, the vendor said.
