1 How to compare and monitor the progress of several parallel or related tasks Usually a project consists of several tasks and the project will be considered "finished" only if all subordinate tasks are finished.

2 What project managers want to see? Initially: specs of all tasks (whos responsible, task description, due date, etc.) Before all tasks are done: progress of each task, how many days remaining for each task, etc. After all tasks are done: performance of all tasks (elapsed days, man- hours, punctuality, etc.)

3 A demo In the example below, suppose we have a project consists of 3 parallel tasks:

4 Summary of 3 tasks We will have 3 tasks assigned to adam, bob, and chuck each (starting letters: a,b,c). The supervisor for all 3 tasks is david. More details are shown on the next page:

6 Task tags The key to compare related tasks is to assign all concerned tasks with the sametag (just a single letter or number). In our example, we assign all 3 tasks with lettera as the tag. Tags are assigned (filled in) when creating a new task, see following form:

16 Closing a task When an undertaker filled in the progress as done, the system will automatically send an to the supervisor asking him to close the case. The supervisor can just click on the link in the and get to the see the task; and then click on the close the task link:

18 After all tasks are closed When displaying all tasks with same tag, it will show: The actual completion date: the duration of each task, the punctuality of each task (late, ahead, or on time) Actual vs. projected man-hours
