    Features

    The list bellow contains the main features already implemented on Plandora:

  • Multiples roles into system. Project Leader, Project Resource, Customer and System Administrator (Root). Each role is associated with different features into system.
  • The system provides customer GUI to open Requirements and follow the status of opened Requirements. (see the screenshot)
  • The Leader is able to link one or more tasks with a request and to assign it to a specific project resource.
  • The tasks of resources can be updated and visualized by project leader in any time through a Gantt chart. (see the screenshot)
  • The project team is able to view the task and requirements through the agile board. This panel is useful to be used during the iteration planning or daily meetings. (see the screenshot)
  • The task working time from the resource TO DO list, can be updated and will be considered dynamically by the Gantt chart and eventually will change the status of request viewed by customer requester. (see the screenshot)
  • The main form could contain gadgets that can be selected by user in order to improve his task or management(see the screenshot)
  • The system administrator is able to configure for each project, key indicators (KPI) which follow the concept of BSC (Balanced Scorecard). Each KPI is actually a SQL statement, and for this reason, can be easily customized for any situations. (see the screenshot)
  • The system administrator is able to create requirement categories for a specific project. It is useful to categorize types of requests (for example: if the project is in compliance with the ITIL Service Desk the categories can be set to Incidents, Problems, Changes, etc)
  • The tool implements the concept of Meta Fields. A Meta Field is a visual element (text box, combo box, calendar or a SQL combo box) created by system administrator and can be related with requirements, tasks or risks of a specific project. The Meta Fields is useful to give more customization from the inputs. (see the screenshot)
  • The information about the projects (task, risks, issues, lesson learned, etc) are automatically indexed and can be searched through a 'google-like' GUI, consolidating a knowledge base of all projects in a colaborative way and with common sharing. (see the screenshot)
  • The team is able to create links between tasks or requirements and repository items, for example SVN files. (see the screenshot)
  • The system supports multiples projects, where each project has one or more leaders, one or more resources and one or more customers. (see the screenshot)
  • The Leader of project is able to check and approve/refuse the requirements coming from customers. The project resources won't be involved until the request is approved. (see the screenshot)
  • The Plandora tool is multiplatform. It is written in Java and runs in any operational system that supports the Java language.
  • Plandora was designed and tested under a free data base (MySQL) and free web server (Jakarta Tomcat).
  • The Plandora tool is royalty free for any purposes. Anyone is allowed to use, modify and resell fully or partially this system (including commercial usage). For more information, check the LGPL terms of use.
