The module is made in the form of Plug-in for IBM Rational ClearQuest 7.0 and upper. This module is intended for every person who uses IBM Rational ClearQuest and is short of project management capabilities. The module does not substitute for existing project management tools but adds the operational sections into IBM Rational. For the most experienced users the functions of this module will be absolutely enough for ad hoc planning and operational management of their projects. The module has no analogues in the world!
CM-Consult GanttChart is featured in the IBM Global Solutions Directory ID 41151

The module of the visualization of the ClearQuest tasks hierarchy as Gantt diagram<br />left000The module is made in the form of Plug-in for IBM Rational ClearQuest 7.0 and upper.

The module does not substitute for existing project management tools but adds the operational sections into IBM Rational. For the most experienced users the functions of this module will be absolutely enough for ad hoc planning and operational management of their projects. The module has no analogues in the world!CM-Consult GanttChart is featured in the IBM Global Solutions Directory ID 41151 <br />Annotation<br />Those who works are used to work with IBM Rational ClearQuest obviously have a sense of a small limitation of its capabilities in the area of clear activities planning for change requests (tasks, bug reports etc.). That is they can set up the requests to show task chain, dates, workload etc but all this will be shown as usual list of tasks. And to change anything in several tasks they should enter every task separately and fulfill the number of monotonous actions. This problem related to the work with complex hierarchical tasks and plans can be easily settled with the module GanttChart for ClearQuest.<br />GanttChart for ClearQuest can be applied interesting for everyone who uses IBM Rational ClearQuest and is in shortage of the project management capabilities. Our module doesn’t substitute for existing project management tools but adds the operational sections into IBM Rational tools instead (perhaps in next versions we’ll cope to transfer the most of MS Project functions into ClearQuest).  The module considerably simplifies the management of the complex hierarchical tasks. This allows freeing project managers of routine operations and focusing on the main task.GanttChart for ClearQuest – is the new generation module that is intended for concerted operations with IBM Rational ClearQuest Eclipse. All project management functions of the module are available immediately after its installation in the standard menu of IBM ClearQuest.<br />GanttChart for ClearQuest - is the very flexible solution which allows setting up any change requests with any relations and any nesting level, granting meanwhile the fine tuning of additional fields.Here are the fundamental capabilities of GanttChart for ClearQuest:<br />Multiplatform. Our module is being incorporated into the Eclipse client of IBM Rational ClearQuest and works on different platforms of Widows and Unix.<br />There is no necessity of additional software. Everything works in one tool - IBM Rational ClearQuest. The exceptions are the functions of budgeting, resource distribution and portfolio management.<br />The only one data source and the synchronization in real time. The module allows showing the real state of projecting activities basing on the last changes in IBM Rational ClearQuest. There is no necessity to make additional synchronization or data duplication for it. All visualization functions are real time.<br /> All functions of IBM Rational ClearQuest are still accessible. Because of module embedding into IBM Rational ClearQuest the user has an access to the planning capabilities by Gantt diagram and to all the functions of IBM Rational ClearQuest (building requests, reports, graphs etc) at the same time.  <br />Benefits<br />Benefits for  project managers and administrators:<br />Analyzing the project status in real time scale.<br />Agile correcting the project plan.<br />Saving project manager’s time for the replanning of request groups (change requests and extension requests). Especially within service oriented approach when a great number of requests every day require a special attention.<br />Effectively distributing the resources.<br />Transferring requests from one state to another on-the-fly.<br />Shifting the groups of tasks and requests (change planned dates) in drag-and-drop mode.<br />Benefits for project members:<br />To see their own workload on the whole pool of requests at once (tasks, defects, requests etc).<br />To work with task plan comfortable and as usual.<br />Realization<br />Plug-in module for IBM Rational ClearQuest Eclipse. <br />Requirements<br />IBM Rational ClearQuest (any version starting from 7.0) is installed.<br />Features<br />Displaying <br />Displaying a calendar grid and a plan in a separate view of the ClearQuest client for Eclipse<br />Displaying a hierarchy and relationships between change requests in form of summary tasks and an execution sequence<br />Displaying a completion rate (in percent) of every change request<br />Displaying an owner of every change request on a Gantt chart<br />Displaying planned shifts when editing a plan<br />Displaying shifts between actual and planned dates <br />Displaying brief information about a task in form of tooltips<br />Displaying an UML state diagram for every task (upon a command from the right-click menu)<br />Displaying change requests on basis of executed queries.  Allows displaying a plan of any ClearQuest change request execution on basis of an existing query. For example, for executing the " A" Change Request or Defect a plan is generated; also plans on basis of change request " B" and " C" are generated. Pool of tasks for change request execution is generated. <br />Project manager can generate a query that displays controllable change requests.   In this case, the module will display a list of active tasks for the aggregate of change requests, providing a complete plan with all the owners.This functionality allows managers to both control a composition of tasks and compare a list of tasks with a list of Change Requests or Defects <br />Visualization of change requests using different colour schemes depending on a completion rate and ratio of planned to actual dates. Color coding allows differentiating tasks by statuses, for example: green – the task has been completed; yellow – the task is in progress; red – the task has not been not started and the planned start date is past due; crimson – the task is in progress but the planned finish date is past due; blue – the task has been planned; grey – new unplanned task<br />For composite change requests, splitting a Gantt chart into sections eases the analysis of tasks by a separate request in the plan<br />Displaying upon double-click a fully functional ClearQuest form where you can modify a state of a change request or edit a change request<br />Displaying a workload of an owner (or owners) on the basis of a selected chart or in aggregate by projects (the feature will be available in v. 1.3) <br />Custom displaying of fields in a chart (ID, Record Type, Headline and any other custom fields) (the feature will be available in v. 1.3)<br />Visualization of change history for a selected change request (the feature will be available in v. 1.3)<br />Management<br />Available Operations for Change Requests:<br />Modifying planned start and finish dates from within a Gantt chart<br />Dragging tasks within the calendar grid on a Gantt chart<br />Modifying task owners from within a Gantt chart considering possible owners for a selected change request<br />Grouped operations:<br />Selecting groups of tasks and performing aggregate modifications of planned dates (prolongation, changing execution dates)<br />Selecting related tasks and performing aggregate modifications of planned dates<br />Modifying planned dates for child tasks owing to shifting of an summary task within a Gantt chart<br />Assigning owners for change requests from within a Gantt chart<br />Ability to cancel the last operation (Undo functionality)<br />Preview mode (developing a plan without saving changes to the ClearQuest database) allows saving drafts of a plan (the feature will be available in v. 1.3)<br />Creating new change requests from within a Gantt chart (the feature will be available in v. 1.3)<br />Creating links between an execution sequence and a change request hierarchy from within a Gantt chart (the feature will be available in v. 1.3)<br />Navigation<br />Navigating to the beginning of a plan to the first task<br />Navigating to the end of a plan to the last task<br />Navigating to the current date in a plan<br />Selecting any date in a calendar plan and highlighting the aggregate of tasks to be executed on this date (the feature will be available in v. 1.3)<br />Additional features<br />Flexible configuration of functions<br />Export and import configuration for replication<br />Access restriction to configuration for general users <br />Automatic building of a Gantt chart on the basis of selected queries<br />Printing a plan to a printer <br />Export and import a plan to MS Project format<br />Export and import a plan to MS Excel format (the feature will be available in v. 1.3)<br />Specifying a working calendar for a project (the feature will be available in v. 1.3) <br />Support of ALM schema<br />Support of any custom ClearQuest schema in case this schema’s change requests contain fields necessary for planning<br />Multiplatform (executable on all platforms that support IBM Rational ClearQuest Client for Eclipse)<br />Screenshots<br /> <br />  HYPERLINK " http://rational-tools.info/upload/gantt/image005.jpg" <br />GanttChart in ClearQuest menu<br /> <br />Tasks hierarchy visualization.
