A collection of subordinate schedules (subprojects) that are defined by the hierarchy of a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), Organizational Breakdown Structure (OBS), Integrated Product Team (IPT) Structure, or some other logical structure such as Project Life Cycle, Functional, Financial or Customer Defined. The benefits of using an IMS include the ability to perform a Critical Path Method (CPM) analysis across multiple Work Breakdown Structures and the ability to increase the scope of shared resource management.

Ensure valid status of tasks with SSI’s Post Task Status form. Invalid dates (projected dates before or actual dates after the current project status date) are shown in yellow to remind you to address their status.
Change remaining resource assignment values while keeping dates as they are. No need to constantly change task type from Fixed Duration/Work/Units while estimating remaining resource values for in-progress tasks.
Pick a date from a simple calendar pop-up and have SSI Tools calculate how much to increase or decrease a task’s duration to reach that date – without adding date constraints.
The SSI Watchlist is useful for tracking variances on key items in one section of a schedule as you are working in another section of a schedule. Each time you make a change in the schedule that has the potential to cause a variance to the key milestones, you can click Check for Variances to see if any of your changes has caused a schedule variance relative to the dates you are tracking.
The toolbox is a collection of useful time saving features anyone who works with Microsoft Project will want. Features such as: Adding common predecessors or successors to selected tasks, adding common prefixes or suffixes to text data, replacing text with different values, making text proper case, etc.
SSI Tools includes two "bridge" tools to generate import files (transaction files) for schedule integration with Deltek MPM™ or Deltek Cobra™ - two popular Earned Value Management tools.
SSI’s EVM bridge tools solve the problem of “fiscal period” reporting by letting you define your own reporting calendar rather than using standard calendar weeks or months.
SSI Tools is packaged with an example project that you can use as a playground to try out and learn all of your SSI Tools.
Gain access to SSI's knowledge base. Here you will find detailed information on each tool, and exactly how to use them.
Check to make sure you are always on the latest version of SSI Tools by checking for updates. Set update preferences, and be notified of new updates automatically.
Use this tool to copy resource assignments from one task and paste them on others. You can paste them on a single task or multiple!
Quantifiable Backup Data (QBD) is often required on schedules adhering to Earned Value requirements on any tasks that have long baseline durations. Tracking and managing QBD on each task can be quite the hassle, and auditors often want to see a task's accompanying QBD. With the SSI QBD Tools, you will be able to assign, track, and status QBD steps with just a few clicks.
