Simplistic software tools simply aren’t up to the task of complex scheduling.
Simplicity can be a good feature, but when it comes to using simple tools like Excel for scheduling, the real-world operational complexity overwhelms its capabilities. Using spreadsheets to schedule resources and equipment is a time-consuming manual process. What’s more, they do not provide true insight into the impact of schedule changes or updates on important Key Performance Indicator metrics. You cannot easily and rapidly create and evaluate schedule scenarios and you can’t make effective use of important information, like costs and staffing shortages.
