Project Scheduling - HTML Import/Export

written by: Finn Orfano • edited by: Michele McDonough • updated: 3/18/2012

HTML Import/Export Project Scheduling is often hidden under the tag ‘Web Development’ or some other specific tags like Project Management Process. More than a separate project, it is often used as a technique used in Project Scheduling executed with the help of a number of software packages. Read on

    Project scheduling takes into account the making of a project base plan that lists the resources, tentative start and finishing dates, amounts of different resources required during specific time periods, and a budget for each specific activity.

    When the term project schedule is mentioned, it is often associated with Gantt chart-style information. Gantt charts take the name of Henry Gantt, who was a pioneer in management in the 1900s. He came up with this unique visual aid for scheduling, and it has been called the Gantt chart ever since. The Gantt chart- most widely used tool for scheduling - is used to highlight the use of resources in a given period of time. Typically, this chart represents time horizontally while listing scheduled resources vertically. Often, managers make use of the Gantt chart to design trial-and-error schedules in order to get an understanding of various arrangements.

    Project scheduling also includes dependencies and milestones, apart from resources. In general, this will be a detailed overview of the entire project.

    With milestones, a project is broken up into manageable chunks. With the exception of a small project, the entire project should not be classified in one lump with just one check toward the end. It helps to group related tasks together and to have a comprehensible milestone at the end. The idea of having a defined milestone is useful since it signals the end of each segment in a project.

    Dependencies is where something needs to happen ahead of a second event. For example, gathering requirements would need to be completed ahead of completing tender documentation for a project. Dependencies need to be worked out so that the project team can work out modifications to any part of the project.

    With respect to resources, outputs are needed to be produced and their associated qualities are needed to be outlined. This, in turn, means that resources that are required to meet the outputs will need to be detailed. Resources can include anything from staff time, specific skill or knowledge to money for purchasing equipments.

    HTML Import/Export Scheduling

    HTML Import/Export Project Scheduling is a project scheduling task that encapsulates basic jargons and terminologies of ‘Project Scheduling’ with a full-fledged technical back-up of data import and export features. In HTML import/export project scheduling an authoring tool is prepared making different versions of data come together and work toward achieving a milestone – one of the basic Project Scheduling parameters. After setting well defined goals and the platform (authoring tool), a format is designed on which documentation is done. This documentation is basically the collection of different types of files and data formats used in HTML project scheduling presented in the form of HTML help Format.

    You can either independently work on HTML import/export, or create a separate folder from where the whole operation will take place. But, keep in mind the technical expertise you would be applying, since it would vary from software to software. There are a number of software packages available for HTML import/export, which are highly technical in nature but really simple to apply. They can be used for online encryption, PDF documentation, enterprise management, web browsing application and many other unlimited data usability systems. You can find a list of import/export software in this link where there are some useful HTML import/export software packages as well. Import/export practically represents a knowledge base repository needed for smooth functioning of various projects. HTML project scheduling with import and export features provides the components essential for a project management system.

    One of the commonly used programs for html scheduling, GanttProject is GPL-licensed, which means it is open source. It is also Java-based and runs with various operating systems like Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. The feature of this software is a Gantt chart that is utilized for scheduling of tasks along with doing resource management making use of resource load charts (Sample Project for Resource Load Chart).

    Html scheduling comes into play when html – one of the reporting options from a list that also includes MS Project, PDF, and spreadsheets – is selected for reporting outcome. The highlighted feature of this kind of html scheduling includes task hierarchy and dependencies, Gantt chart, resource load chart, generation of Program Evaluation and Review Technique or PERT chart, and html reports.

    Utilizing computer applications to make project scheduling easier not only decreases overhead and effort, but it also results in better quality project information. Having said that, requirements for import and export of project schedule information is also important. The way in which various managements achieve this is via tools such as Microsoft Project, Scitor Project Scheduler, and CA SuperProject (midrange tools) – these work well for projects that last within the range of six months to a year, and for those that have a moderate number or dependencies.

    And for larger projects, which require more analysis capacities, high-end applications like Primavera, Niku Project Workbench, and Welcom Open Plan Professional are more appropriate.

    Examples of Some HTML Import/Export Software

    An example of html import/export software systems includes EditPro, a professional text editor that enables syntax highlighting for html and allows for import/export to html. Another Software that has this function is PDF Editor Pilot, which is a word processor that makes PDF documents. This application has built in html and MS office import/export options and this makes it feasible to convert PDF docs from popular document formats like html.

    Mars Notebook is a useful organizer with import/export facilities from/to html, MS Word, text, Works, WordPerfect, RTF, Unicode text, and Write files.

    You can also find drupal content management system making open use of HTML import/export project scheduling. You can refer to some other samples as well as experts in this field for a thorough understanding.

    Project Schedule refers to how various aspects of a project are expected to be finished. In a nutshell, what is expected to happen and when. Following this baseline HTML project scheduling enables technicians or experts to support their own tools and help completing the project management plans with wider implications. It is really hard to find a general explanation of HTML import/export project scheduling since it is the concept of pure practical utility and can be learnt only at intermediate levels. However, project management really helps one understand it better and organize it effectively.
