One of the most important tracking instruments that can help to manage task performance and control processes is process status control charts. These charts can report important information about current status of the processes. By using process status control charts, managers can consistently collect relevant data, analyze and then carefully examine the data to reveal issues and find appropriate solutions. Also managers can use data obtained from process status control charts to keep statistics. This statistics will help to organize repeatable and regular processes more efficient next time.
VIP Task Manager is task management software that helps manage processes and track process progress by using graph instruments. VIP Task Manager allows to break down a process into tasks and build customizable statuses for these tasks. The Charts Panel allows to control the process and track its progress by the field 'Complete'. For example, to control the purchasing process, managers can use Column chart that shows progress of all related tasks within the task group 'Purchasing'. Each task may have specific statuses (Paid, Delivered, Cancelled, Delayed, etc.) which characterize the progress of the purchasing process as a whole.
