GanttChart for ClearQuest is a unique plug-in for IBM Rational ClearQuest developed by CM-Consult. It allows project managers, executives, and all team members to view tasks from the project plan. Project managers like GanttChart because it is easy to use. With two clicks GanttChart allows re-planning tasks, and automatically updates the corresponding task fields. That is GanttChart for ClearQuest allows you to plan tasks directly from ClearQuest in real time mode.

Also, project managers will definitely like the ability to visualize the transition tree of each request. This function not only displays the graphic representation of a state chart, but also allows viewing the number of transitions between states (number of loops). If a task was sent for rework several times, this information will be available in the state chart.

The most important feature is that after the installation GanttChart works as a single application with ClearQuest, and allows project managers to save time for planning and re-planning the tasks.

GanttChart is compatible with any ClearQuest schema including standard ALM schema and any customized user schema. Sometimes it is required to perform minor corrections to the custom schema to be able to use all features of the application.

GanttChart for ClearQuest 1.4 is fully compatible with IBM Rational ClearQuest v. 8.0

  1. 1. GanttChart for ClearQuest 1.4 is fully compatible with IBM Rational ClearQuest v. 8.0 Monday, 04 February 2013 Experts from CM-Consult fully adapted GanttChart for IBM Rational ClearQuest v.8.0 . Currently GanttChartforClearQuest supports the following versions of IBM Rational ClearQuest: 6.x, 7.x, and 8.x. Besides, in release 1.4 of GanttChart performance of the application when displaying a large number of tasks was improved. GanttChart for ClearQuest is a unique plug-in for IBM Rational ClearQuest developed by CM-Consult. It allows project managers, executives, and all team members to view tasks from the project plan. Project managers like GanttChart because it is easy to use. With two clicks GanttChart allows re-planning tasks, and automatically updates the corresponding task fields. That is GanttChart for ClearQuest allows you to plan tasks directly from ClearQuest in real time mode. Also, project managers will definitely like the ability to visualize the transition tree of each request. This function not only displays the graphic representation of a state chart, but also allows viewing the number of transitions between states (number of loops). If a task was sent for rework several times, this information will be available in the state chart. The most important feature is that after the installation GanttChart works as a single application with ClearQuest, and allows project managers to save time for planning and re-planning the tasks. GanttChart is compatible with any ClearQuest schema including standard ALM schema and any customized user schema. Sometimes it is required to perform minor corrections to the custom schema to be able to use all features of the application. The most important features include: Ability to plan and re-plan on the spot, including altering the dates for multiple tasks. Support for user databases with large number of tasks without performance degradation. Convenient display of tasks: color coding of tasks depending in their status (late, completed, not implemented, etc.). Ability to view the user’s load for the whole pool of change requests (tasks, defects, requests, etc.). Representation of hierarchy and relations between change requests as aggregate tasks and implementation sequence – complete visualization of relations (hierarchy and relations between tasks). Display of brief information about a task as a tool tip. Display of UML state chart for every task (through the context menu). Ability to open change request forms directly from a chart. Different representations of a project (as a Gantt chart or as resources load by day). Testimonials The GanttChart for ClearQuest tool has proved to be a very successful add-on for the ClearQuest system. It significantly simplifies the planning process in ClearQuest. Standard integration of IBM Rational ClearQuest and MS Project allows solving a number of same tasks that GanttChart solves, but with GanttChart it is much more convenient to work with a large number of heterogeneous relations between change requests, including hierarchical and sequential relations. Besides, there is no need to use two tools at the same time – a project manager can well do with ClearQuest with GanttChart add-on installed. Our experts have gained much use from this tool. GanttChart flexible settings allow configuring the necessary representation of a Gantt chart to be displayed. Every user has got an opportunity to build “their own” Gantt chart, where they can see the set of tasks assigned to them, and every task can be highlighted by a necessary color GanttChart for ClearQuest 1.4 is fully compatible with IBM Rational Cl... http://rational-tools.info/index2.php?option=com_content&task=view&... . 1 7 06.02.2013 13:23
  2. 2. depending on its status, that allows the user to organize their working time in the better way. Additionally GanttChart has particularly flexible creating a Gantt chart with any queries. Christian Häussler, IT Software Development Manager, HUK Coburg AG, Germany. This solution was developed as a result of an effort of both our specialists and our clients. The idea to create such solution has emerged as a result of close cooperation with our customers and deep understanding of their business problems. In most companies we have cooperated with the planning horizon for tasks and works is measured in months and quarters, but not years. Project managers have often to modify work schedule, update it, establish priorities, and set responsible persons. ClearQuest is a powerful tool that simplifies this process, but it has its limits. In ClearQuest, planning and representation of tasks is performed in flat view, but all managers are used to using the Gantt chart for planning. Unfortunately, the standard ClearQuest package does not provide users with such opportunity. GanttChart for ClearQuest allows managers to save a lot of time while preparing plans of work/tasks and exercising operational control over the project. In absolute terms, a manager spends about 12-16 minutes on rescheduling the average group of connected tasks without using GanttChart. Using GanttChart for ClearQuest, the same operation takes 10-15 seconds. So, using GanttChart for ClearQuest results in increasing the manager’s efficiency and manageability of the whole project. We are greatly pleased to have gained recognition of our contribution from IBM Corporation Alexander Novichkov, CEO, CM-Consult, IBM Rational ClearQuest certify specialist. CM-Consult’s GanttChart is a product that was wanted by many project managers using IBM Rational ClearQuest. It allows executing almost every PM’s task within IBM Rational ClearQuest in a new and agile way. Vasily Razuvaykin, Former Rational sales specialist, IBM (2005-2007). With GanttChart module my team achieved possibility to plan tasks for change requests resolving right after acceptance, in the same tool, without any intermediate steps. I recommend this tool as a rapid-planning extension to all teams, which use ClearQuest. Rustam Zaydullin, Lead analyst, SCM Specialist, TatNeft (Oil company). This is a usefull and successful solution allowing to simplify a life to ClearQuest users who got used to work with Gantt charts. Visualisation of hierarchy and relationships of change requests of different types allows to accelerate the analysis of a current tasks' status and to make a decision faster. Dmitry Lapygine, Rational Technical Specialist, IBM EE/A, SWG Department. The major advantage of the GanttChart tool is the ability to graphically represent states of activities. When you have a large number of activities it is difficult to visually represent and estimate them using the grid view only. In such case, a chart is very useful. Another advantage is the possibility to modify dates of activities in graphic view (i.e. in a chart itself) that simplifies data updating in ClearQuest.

  5. 5. GanttChart configuration is easy and intuitive Visualization of states provides a convenient representation of task change history. It represents states and transitions between states, and also calculates and displays their number. It is convenient, when you need to find out how many times a task (or any change request) has been returned for rework. For your convenience, you can rearrange states by moving by a mouse.
