Task manager is a tool for contractors, sub-contractors, and project managers. Task manager allows you to incorporate time-sensitive data into 3D Tekla Structures models and to control the schedule at various stages and levels of detail throughout the project.
With Task manager, you can create, store and manage scheduled tasks, and link the tasks to their corresponding model objects. On the basis of the tasks, you can create customizable model views and comprehensive 4D simulations of the progression of the project.
You can create tasks in Task manager or import tasks from external project management tools such as Microsoft Office Project or Primavera P6. The import functionality allows you to preserve any schedules that you have created outside the model environment, and thereby maintain schedule intelligence and organization. You can supplement imported schedules with more detail in Task manager.
The above workflow matches what can be found in a normal project delivery - an increasing awareness of activities that support higher level project objectives and milestones. Task manager gives you a logical storage space for this information, and helps you extend schedule control into powerful 3D representations.
