Merge/Update Microsoft Project® files with Tasks, Effort Estimates and Dependency Links Directly from Rational Rose® Class Models

Boston, MA. Axiomatic Design Software announces release 2.1 of Acclaro Scheduler® for Rational Rose®. With this release comes the ability for software development project managers to synchronize their project tasks, work estimates and component dependencies with their UML models. Merge/update files created by Acclaro Scheduler can be processed within Microsoft Project, permitting project managers to view and accept additions, deletions or discrepancies between the current project plan and the model architecture at package or class levels.

"Project Managers spend the majority of their time updating their project plans to keep pace as development efforts evolve." says Chris Arangio, CTO of Axiomatic Design. "The merge/update feature of Acclaro Scheduler for Rational Rose effectively automates this process, freeing up Project Managers to manage their projects rather than chase them."

About Acclaro Scheduler

Acclaro Scheduler allows architects and project managers to optimally manage the implementation of new features or changing requirements into their development programs. Integrated into Rational Rose, the Visual Design and Development tool from Rational Software, Acclaro Scheduler permits users to:

  • Assess the impact of changing class designs
  • Estimate the development effort to implement these changes
  • Generate optimal coding and testing work plans
  • Drive the creation and updating of Microsoft Project schedules
The heart of the Acclaro Scheduler is a sophisticated, patented design analysis technique, based on axiomatic design technology, developed at MIT, and awarded Industry Week's Technology of the Year Award.
