Pipeline: Your Consolidated Hub
of Essential Project Data
Get a centralized view of the entire multi-project environment,
including ongoing, closed, and inactive projects, in one place.
Intelligent Project Management:
High-Priority Projects Are Always on Top of the Pipeline
In the Pipeline, projects are sorted by priority, which is calculated according to the CCPM principles based on the dependencies between projects.
The project that requires maximum management attention is always on top. The order of projects changes in real time depending on project environment transformations, so you can always be sure that you’re focused on the right part of project work.
At the same time, you can set up a Business Value for every project, and Epicflow will prioritize them based on the defined values.
Identify the Projects’ Feasibility by Their Colors in the Pipeline
Buffer is extra time before the end of the project used to manage uncertainty. In Epicflow, it is closely related to the priority coefficient. The less buffer a project has, the higher the risk factor, and the higher it is in the Pipeline.
You can see projects of four colors in the Pipeline:
- Red is an indicator of unfeasible milestones;
- Yellow warns about buffer reduction;
- Green and blue mean that your projects have enough buffer time and will most likely be delivered on time.
Leverage Pipeline’s Change Sensitivity
Get Real-Time Automatic Project Priority Recalculation As Soon As Project Changes Occur
You don’t have to calculate anything: in case of project changes, Pipeline gets automatically updated right away. All projects’ priorities are recalculated immediately based on the milestone feasibility.
Have Essential Project Information at Hand
with Pipeline Filtering
Find necessary information immediately by using the following Pipeline filters:
- Project name
- Project manager
- Project tag
- Task name
- Date range
- Summary level
- User name
- User tag
- User attribute
- Group name
- Group tag
- Item color
Implement Project Changes on the Fly with the Quick Edit Mode
A Quick Edit (QE) Mode lets you create and edit projects by using key combinations or a graphic interface in the Pipeline.
Predict the Due Dates with Pipeline Leveling
Enable Pipeline Leveling for the whole project portfolio to predict the delivery date of every project based on automatically calculated priorities OR business value.
In the first case, Epicflow prioritizes tasks across projects according to the dependencies between projects and other constraints.
In the second case, priorities are calculated based on the importance of projects for the business as well as resources’ capacity and availability.
Make the In-Depth Analysis to Choose the Best Sequence and Deliver All Projects on Time
As soon as Epicflow calculates the dates, you can go to the Dashboard to the Performance tab to check the details:
- Project statuses,
- Number of hours in execution,
- Planned due dates,
- Percentage and number of projects to be delivered on time.
If you see that missed due dates are inevitable, you can enable What-if analysis or try Project Staggering to change the start dates of the projects to contribute to their timely delivery or assign more people to enormously big tasks to cut their duration.
Explore Project Schedules in a Gantt View Right from the Pipeline
Open the Gantt Chart in the Pipeline to see projects’ schedules, explore milestones, tasks, and dependencies between them as well as implement changes to your projects’ plans.
Choose Between Automatic and Manual (Customized) Planning Depending on Your Needs
- Go to the Auto-Planning mode to have automatically calculated priorities and task durations.
- Enable the Manual Planning mode to replace tasks and summaries on the timeline and change their duration.
Predict Your Resources’ Load and Output with an AI-Driven Future Load Graph
Enable a Future load graph to let predictive analytics calculate the workload of your resources based on the assigned tasks at any date in the future. This graph helps avoid overload and eliminate bottlenecks in your flow.
