Project 4 represents the project data in a clear, compelling visual presentation displaying a color-coded representation of resource usage; possible areas of potential resource misalignment are highlighted for clear viewing. “Resource Usage View” is an essential tool for quickly finding over and under allocated workers and then being able to precisely balance against the project requirements.

The ConceptDraw Project user interface has undergone some important changes in version 4, providing even quicker navigation between projects and different status views, these changes dramatically speed up the task of project management. With Project 4 tasks and resources contained in all projects are clearly laid out making it easier to supervise each individual project as well as all the projects contained in the manager’s portfolio. These user interface changes have been introduced in Project 4 to make project operations easier and faster for both beginner and experienced users.
