Features for the whole team
With five different project views—Gantt, list, board, calendar and sheet—manufacturing teams can manage work the way they want to. And because our software is entirely online, team members can collaborate from anywhere and track changes in real time. There’s even a mobile app to quickly update tasks if you’re away from your desk.
Real-time tracking and reporting
With timesheets, dashboards, reports and approval workflows, you can be confident that you’re operating efficiently and delivering high-quality products. Track everything from the level of effort on a subtask to the total cost of a portfolio. ProjectManager delivers accurate insights into your projects and processes.

The best manufacturing project management tools
Plan and track production
Define your project scope and make a plan with online Gantt charts. Our Gantt chart serves as an excellent production planning tool to help you execute your manufacturing process to perfection. Use drag-and-drop scheduling to adapt to changes and track progress on the timeline as it happens, so you’re better equipped to deliver on time.
Custom manufacturing processes
Use the kanban board to manage specialized manufacturing processes. Customize column names to map to your needs for inventory management, order fulfillment and more. Our board makes it easy to execute, track and deliver. Attach all your documents and comments on the card and collaborate with your team to get the job done.
Easy-to-read project dashboards
Our real-time dashboards give you a complete view of your manufacturing project, helping you to spot lags in production and minimize bottlenecks. Track your planned vs actual progress to shorten lead times and improve efficiency. You can even monitor progress on change requests for better change management.
Centralized file storage
Store your BOMs, change requests, photos, invoices and other project files online in one place. Add attachments to tasks created so critical information can be found quickly and easily. If a customer submits a change request, simply add it to the task and the team is notified. It’s easy to keep all your important documents together.
Team & resource management
Loop in all necessary departments and shorten your communication chain with effective team collaboration. Features like file sharing and workflow approvals help maintain quality standards throughout production. Plus, track employee hours and manage overages with online timesheets and workload tracking tools.
Live budget tracking
Input your project budgets, and track your actual vs planned cost across an entire portfolio of projects. By viewing all your projects collectively in one place, you can intelligently schedule employees and project resources to reduce wasteful spending and boost product margins.
